best method for importing my data

Hi,
I have a basic question, I have demultiplexed data generated from MiSeq PE300 run and I would like to know which of the following method is better for importing.

  1. CASAVA 1.8 format
  2. Manifest format.

Thank you

Hi @amm59063,
I recommend reading the online tutorials at https://docs.qiime2.org/ to understand formatting concerns when importing.

The manifest format is the most flexible so if in doubt just use that format for importing your data.

Thanks @Nicholas_Bokulich

I use the CASAVA 1.8 format, I wanted to know is there any advantages over the other one. I have attached the picture of my data.


Thanks again.
