Let’s say I start with a dataset of fastq files, stability.files and a script to automate a Mothur MiSeq SOP from start to finish. It finishes. No errors – yay!
Quick question: do I need to keep all the “stability.trim…” files that were generated? I certainly will keep the dist files, summary tables, count tables, and taxonomy tables generated at the end. But once I know my dataset processed properly, do I keep all the intermediate files?
Thanks in advance,
