I’m a beginner in this field and I recently started using mothur. I have a question regarding how to count the number of reads in each sample, for example after making contigs. I would like the output to be in the following format:
Sample 1: 15000 reads
Sample 2: 12353 reads
Sample 3: 15223 reads
I tried using the command “count.seqs(name=stability.trim.contigs.fasta)”, but unfortunately, it didn’t work. I’m wondering what should be placed in the parameter “name”. Any guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much!
