10.2.4 Removing duplicate reads

To remove duplicate reads from NGS datasets, use Remove Duplicate Reads... under the Sequence menu. This function runs Dedupe, and will remove duplicate sequences that are either exact matches, subsequences, or sequences within some percent identity. It can also find overlapping sequences and group them into clusters. For a detailed explanation of any Dedupe setting, hover the mouse over the setting, or click the help (question mark) button next to the custom options under More Options.
