parallel fastq-dump wrapper
DescriptionNCBI fastq-dump can be very slow sometimes, even if you have the resources (network, IO, CPU) to go faster, even if you already downloaded the sra file (see the protip below). This tool speeds up the process by dividing the work into multiple threads. This is possible because fastq-dump have options (-N and -X) to query specific ranges of the sra file, this tool works by dividing the work into the requested number of threads, running multiple fastq-dump in parallel and concatenating the results back together, as if you had just executed a plain fastq-dump call.
