I am a new user and I have recently completed the moving picture tutorial as well as the gone through some of the old forum postings to see if I can get some insight to how I can go about analyzing my files. I am running into problems with importing the data.
I got my data from Illumina Miseq that was run in a multiplex setting. Each file I have received from the run can be traced back to a barcode corresponding to a sample that I used during amplicon generation. As such each sample (associated with one barcode) has two files and R1 and R2. I have a total of 18 files for the 9 samples that I wish to analyze. I think I can skip the demultiplexing step as I already have individual files. I wish to start my analysis and want to import into qiime and not sure how I can do that. Feedback or direction to where I can read more into this is much appreciated.
