Hello there,
I am a life sciences masters student trying to get to grips with Qiime analysis. I am currently working with data from the literature (supplementary material) to try and replicate previous studies as a way of learning. I am at the point just before OTU picking. I have overlapped the forward and reverse sequences using and I have manually made a mapping file. I am completely lost as to how to link my sequence data to my mapping file in order to get to the next step. I have completed the Qiime tutorials but this particular issue is not addressed in the tutorials. Any help would be great. :)

The next step is to demultiplex your joined reads using a separate barcode file. The barcode sequences should match those in your mapping file.

Code: -o slout/ -i forward_reads.fastq.gz -b barcodes.fastq.gz -m map.tsv
you can replace forward_reads.fastq.gz with the fastq file output from
