Read group information required for MarkDuplicates?
I have 6 samples. The samples were multiplexed and run in multiple lanes on the same flowcell. I have not annotated the BAM files with any read group information. Is it okay if I just merge all BAM files belonging to the same sample and run MarkDuplicates? Or do I need to provide the read group information?
