removing all specific genus sequences

Hello Mothur community!

I have an Ion torrent data set.

How can I get rid of sequences associated to a specific genus. For exemple, I would like to delete all Salmonella sequences from my data set. Is that possible?

Thanks you very much

You can remove specific lineages using the remove.lineage() command. It’s exactly the same as used in the SOP, just add the genus into the taxon field. The exact word you use might change depending on the database, for example in the RDP taxonomy it is “Salmonella”, but in Greengenes it’s “g__Salmonella”.

Helloand thanks you very much. i kinda missed it in the Sop,sorry about the obvious question.thanks you for your time!
