Viewing reads before denoising

dada2

(Andrew Richards) #1

Hello,

I am new to qiime2 and I need to remove the primers before denoising my data. What is the best way to observe a few sequences before trimming my reads in dada2?. The primers I used are:
ITS86F = GTGAATCATCGAATCTTTGAA
ITS4R = TCCTCCGCTTATTGATATGC

Thank you,
Andrew

You could try running zcat or zless on your files from the command line.
