Importing NCBI SRA sequences

Hello everyone,

I have downloaded some sequences from NCBI and I am having some troubles uploading them into qiime. The sequences are forward and reverse and look like this:

@SRR8243471.1 1 length=301

@SRR8243471.2 2 length=300

Would somebody help me to choose which --type I should use in my "qiime tools import" command?

Thanks
Francesco

Hi @Fra ,

Check out this new tutorial, it might save you a few steps:

Otherwise you can check out the importing tutorial at docs.qiime2.org . The --type depends on various characteristics of the data, so you can check out that tutorial to see which type makes sense for your data.

Good luck!
