I have filtered my feature-table by removing the low-abundance features, and I would like to do the same for my rep-seqs, since the rep-seqs are used for taxonomy assignment. Is there a way to do this in QIIME2? Thank you!
How does this Qiime2 plugin look?
Let me know how that works for you?
Thanks for your response! I used that plug-in to filter my feature table and it worked great. I couldn’t figure out how to use it to filter my rep-seqs based on feature abundance. I saw script for filtering based on taxonomy, but at this point, I just want to filter out low abundance features from the rep-seqs. Maybe I am just missing something? I am working around it for now, but it would be nice if I could figure it out
Here are the other filtering plugins:
Keep in mind that most downstream scripts only make use of the feature-table, so, depending on your analysis, you may not have to worry about extra sequences in your rep-seqs.
filter your feature table by abundance, as @colinbrislawn noted. Then use can filter-seqs to filter out features not found in your feature table.
But @colinbrislawn is correct that usually that does not matter, since features not in the feature table are ignored.
