Is there a way to access the actual sequences that are thrown out by deblur? (As in, by seq ID, or in a fasta or something). I am currently using deblur in the command line, I know Q2 has a stats option but I don’t think it outputs what i’m looking for.
I also know I can opt to save intermediate files, but I’m not sure whether any of those files tell me what I need. I’m assuming the .derep file merges all identical sequences, but as far as I can tell there is no way to know what sequences went into each of the “representative” sequences? And conversely which sequences were ultimately eliminated?
