fastx_strip_annots command


This command strips all usearch-style annotations from sequence labels by deleting everything after the first semi-colon (;).

Input can be in FASTA or FASTQ format. The output filename is specified by -fastqout (FASTQ format) and / or -fastaout (FASTA format). You cannot create FASTQ output from FASTA input.

Example

usearch -fastx_strip_annots seqs.fa -fastaout seqs_without_annots.fa
