Add `qiime feature-table filter-seqs` to filtering data documentation

As far as I can tell, qiime feature-table filter-seqs is currently not included in the filtering data documentation. It would be helpful to include this command in the documentation. Based on the current documentation, it’s not clear how a user would filter sequences based on a filtered feature-table.

For instance with my own dataset, I filter ~30% of the sequence variants from the feature table (based on low prevalence across samples), but I didn’t know how to remove the sequence variants for the sequences artifact in order to match the filtered feature table. Given how slow taxonomic classification is with QIIME2, I want to trim my sequences down to match my filtered feature table prior taxonomic classification. I didn’t understand how to do this based on the “Filtering data documentation”

Hi @nick-youngblut! I completely agree, a more detailed tutorial would be really useful here. We have held off on this tutorial specifically because of the missing feature-table filtering functionality, but once that is in place, this tutorial should see a little update! I have opened an issue here. Thanks! :t_rex:
