I have 454 paired end sequencing data for Metagenomics. The hyper variable (V4-V6) regions of the 16S rRNA genes was amplified from the total DNA extracted from each samples using bacterial primer pair 515F and 1061R.
560bp (V4-V6) + an adapter + barcode sequence = ~598bp
I have to do the Quality Control (QC) for the samples and also want to do downstream analysis.
Can anyone suggest me any tool for doing QC as well as for downstream analysis for paired end metagenome 454 data ?
Also if someone can provide me universal adapter sequence for 454, it will be helpful.
Thanks in advance.
