Removing singletons

Hey there,

Is there a way to remove singletons from feature tables?


Hi @Lorinda,
Yes! You are looking for feature-table filter-features.

You would do something like:

qiime feature-table filter-features \
  --i-table table.qza \
  --p-min-frequency 2 \
  --o-filtered-table feature-frequency-filtered-table.qza

I hope that helps!

@Nicholas_Bokulich Yes thank you! I guess I probably should have been able to find this on my own… Thanks for your time :slight_smile:

Wouldn’t you have to set the min-frequency to 2 in order to remove all features with only 1 read?


Thanks @Stream_biofilm for catching this! You are correct — I have edited the original post.


I had that problem too! :roll_eyes:

Eventually I found this page listing all the qiime 2 'scripts’

I hope that help,
