I have ran mothur and uparse pipeline and they were very straighforward. now I am giving a try to qiime - but it is a headache - so un organized and not similar to what I experienced so far.

for example, I have to make a mapping file; but seems I am not pointig to the fastq file in the mapping file ?!!

In my data the reverse data quality is so bad; so I am going to use only the forward read.

so my question is how to for a mapping for for such a set up and it would be great if someone gives a hint how to "Pick OTUs through OTU table" !

Qiime mapping file example looks like

#SampleID BarcodeSequence LinkerPrimerSequence Treatment DOB Description

I wonder which column is for the path to the fastq files ?

Also, I already have removed barcoes, primers with other tools


Thank you

QIIME is very helpful but can have it's painful moments. Here is the pipeline for the Illumina data: 

I make fake mapping file because i already have fastq without any adapters. Just make sure the names are correct but the sequences can be fake. Convert fastq to fasta and use the pipeline.

I have updated my question to make it more clear;

basically, in the mapping file which column corresponds to the path to fasta files ? Thanks
