Demultiplexing nanopore reads

Hey everyone!

My problem is next: I got many FAST5 files from MiniON, then I run guppy to basecall them (with default parameters on GPU). As a result I got FastQ-files. Then I read there were a lot of ways for demultiplexing my reads. And I chose Qcat, it gave me 18 FastQ-files each from different experiment (they differ in barcodes). And now I can't understand my reads trimmed or not? I've tried to run FastQC with one of these files and I didn't see overrepresented sequencies or adapters. May be in general problem is: do demultiplexing trim the reads while defining their barcodes? Btw I ran Qcat without additional parameters.

Use porechop if you are looking to trim the reads: Demultiplexing MinION reads

Hi I have a fastq file from guppy base caller and am trying to demultiplex with porechop, and I get an error saying that Porechop could not determine the barcode orientation. This is the the code I ran. Can someone help me understand this error? Thank you.

rasika@CPHD-NGS:~/CTNG_data$ porechop -i rasika_merged.fastq -b CTNG_out

I'm not much of a nanopore nor Qcat expert, but demultiplexing with Qcat does not trim the reads, according to its manual
