Import adapter trim list

One important part of the preparation of raw data is adapter trimming. To be able to trim off the adaptors, an adapter trim list is required. To obtain this file you will have to get in contact with the vendor and ask them to send this adapter trim list file to you. When an adapter trim list has been supplied by the vendor of the enrichment kit and sequencing machine, it must be formatted as a .xls, .xlsx or .csv list and imported into the Biomedical Genomics Workbench. The adapter trim list can be imported by clicking on the button labeled "Import" in the Toolbar. Select standard import (figure 11.24) and find the adapter trim list you want to import.
