Hi, apologies for this basic questions, I new in NGS quality control. I have been check my NGS data (Illumina - HiSeq 2500 2*100pb) using FastQC after trimming Nextera Adaptater with bbduck (BBTool package) using trimming overlap (ktrim=r k=25 mink=11 hdist=1 tpe tbo). And the checks fails Per base sequence content, Per sequence GC content and Kmer Content. My question is should I be trying remove the first base (~15) of my sequence? When I try this, Kmer Content fails again but at the end of the sequence. Should I remove again at the end? After my goal is to assemble them with a De Bruijn assembler and thus i'm afraid of over-represent kmer.
Thanks for the help.
