Trimming from 5' end in Deblur

I’m wondering if it is possible to add an option to trim from the 5’ when using Deblur. Currently there is only a trim-length option but in some instances a few very low quality bases initially appear in MiSeq runs (10-15 bp) that would probably be better trimmed. This would be like DADA2’s trunc_len_f option.
See the link provided in this post for an example of low quality reads on the left.

Hi @Mehrbod_Estaki! That is a great idea - maybe @wasade (the maintainer of q2-deblur) can provide some additional comments. Thanks!

Thanks, @Mehrbod_Estaki! Sorry for the delay, I did not see this until now. @yoshiki coincidentally opened an issue about this yesterday, and the changes for Deblur are currently in review. We have not issued the necessary revisions yet to q2-deblur as we’ll need to cut a micro release of Deblur first.


No problem @wasade and glad someone else was thinking the same thing as well!
