Dear Mothur users
I would like to do a comparison studies with my amplicon sequence data with previously published data in a specific habitat. I am facing two hurdles. 1. I have generated my sequence data using 16S V3-V4 primers, but some of the previously published data have been generated by using different sets of primer’s like V4-V5, and V1-V2. In this case, is there is a way to analyse the data using mothur? 2. Further, i was re analyzing the data each time from the beginning, while adding new set of samples. Is there a way to circumnavigate my approach.
