The Trim Reads tool is set by default to detect automatically read-through adapters present in the reads used as input for the tool. We recommend to always enable this option. In addition, you can use a Trim adapter list for a more thorough trimming of read-through adapter in reads of lower quality, or to trim for specific adapters that are not read-through such as small RNAs, gene specific primers, or when working with single or mate-paired reads. In such cases, you have to import or create a Trim adapter list that must be supplied to the Trim Reads tool.
