I just spent quite a bit of time manually adding multiple tags to each of 60 samples. The tags have a # in front of them, and I expected that this would cause the tags to stay with the samples in downstream analyses. However, when I grouped the 60 samples into a Dataset List, I noticed that none of the tags were carried over.
1) Why weren’t my #tags carried over to the samples when I grouped them into a dataset list?
My first step is to feed each of the 60 samples into Trimmomatic. If I don’t have a dataset list for input with this tool, then I will have to select each dataset individually by clicking.
2) Is there a way to simultaneously select multiple samples when building a Dataset List or when selecting “Multiple Datasets” in the input field with various tools (e.g. shift+click to highlight all samples, etc)?
