Hi @hey
It sounds your metadata is not well-organized! The third column involves some identical barcode sequences and I see same story in the second column for example samples rep10 and rep 20 have the same sequences! It made the software confusing to identify correctly your samples, in my view. I think it is the point!

Hey there, @hey! :wave:

As @TurboQiimer pointed out, many of your samples are being mapped to the same barcodes. Some questions I have are:

  • What version of QIIME 2 are you using? Can you please share the output of qiime info?
  • What indexing strategy was used to produce this data? Here are a couple of links to help you answer this question:

Once we have more information, we can determine whether you should run cutadapt w/ different options or if you’re barcodes file is suspect.
