data files with frequency values

Post by itiago » Mon Jul 16, 2018 8:45 am

I don't know if this is a request or a question or both.

There are some databases, that due to storage space management, provide files with sequences that at the end have ..._frequency_X"
This constitute a problem when you want to analyse several samples and compare then since the values about shared taxa or OTUs will be wrong.
Is there a way that mothur enter in consideration with those information that I'm not aware of, or is it feasible to add a feature to mothur, that will read the sequence names and if frequency is present it will adds-up the number that follows it, and takes that number in consideration when doing the "math"?

Thank you
