Step 2 : Adapter trimming and barcode extraction

  • Updated

Adapter sequences are trimmed from the sequenced reads using Cutadapt (Martin 2011, Bolger, Lohse et al. 2014). Barcode structures are extracted from the reads. Read pairs where either R1 or R2 are too short after barcode extraction are discarded (< 30 nt).
