Run dada2 denoise-paired, only output statistics?

Hey there Qiime2 crew,

I’d like to know whether there is, or could be, an option to run dada2 denoise-paired without outputting a final feature table and fasta file. I’ve created a job array that runs denoise-paired across a range of forward and reverse 3’ truncation values, so that I can optimize total recovered reads. It would be great to run this and only output the statistics, so that I could avoid generating hundreds of files. I think it would also come in handy for any other parameter value testing…

Cheers,
Sarah

Hey there @stweedt!

Why not just hard-code a single output? It could be overwritten countless times.

Alternatively, you could use the Artifact API to generate your results, choosing to only save the denoising stats.

Let us know how it goes!

Ah, of course. I feel a bit silly. Thanks for the tip!

Oh I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to imply that was a silly question - I thought it was a great question to ask!

Keep us posted on how it goes for you.
