Dear mothur users,
I am a new mothur user. I have been using other metagenomics pipelines for analyses. I wish to know where the calculated sequencing error rate is used in the subsequent steps in mothur. For instance, in QIIME, the error rate calculated from MOCKs is used to perform abundance filtering of OTU table. Thus, spurious OTUs are significantly reduced or eliminated. For mothur, I do not see where the sequencing error rate is applied (once calculated).
Thanks in advance,
