I have a question on the sequencing data comparison.
My reads are PAIR ENDED READS (150bp each end, merged are around 250bp) sequenced by Illumina 16S 515F-806R.
I want to analysis my reads together with EMP project data. However, I found their data are all 150bp SINGLE ENDED sequences.
May I know is there any way for me to pick the OTU together? And make them comparable?
Thanks in advance.
