Hello, I have a bacterial 16S rRNA dataset. I have created a metadata tsv file initially, before I started to QC and analyze the data.
Obviously, I need to filter out the samples with low number of reads, rarefy the the feature tables etc. which may lose some of samples.
I would like to created a new metadata tsv file that only includes the samples that pass the QC and read to analyze. – this is new metadata tsv file is a subset of the initial one.
Is there any way that I could do this in a faster way? (not manually). Otherwise, I have check the number of samples in each step.
