  -ignorepaired    Normally for paired-end samples, each read of the pair is
                   written to the same file. With this option, paired reads
                   can be written to any file. This is useful for splitting a
                   paired FASTQ file back into separate files for each
                   fragment. (Only for interleaved paired-end files).

  -gz              gzip compress the output FASTQ files
