How to show number of reads in each sample?

Hi everyone!

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! :pray:

You’re close - try count.groups


It’s work :star_struck:
Thank you so much
