I am using qiime for 16srRNA analysis. I used  with green genes as reference. As I am new to 16s analysis I want to know how to remove Chimeric sequences from the resulting files from uclust in qiime.

I have tried using the commands but it is generating a blank chimera txt file. Usearch does not work as well. Is there any other method? Also,Is it necessary to remove chimeric sequences after uclust otu picking in qiime?

Are you using the tool command-line? The forum dedicated to this tool is probably the best place to get support for troubleshooting issues (other than the resources at the link you shared). I see a few threads that focus on this part of the analysis workflow or you could post a new question if those do not help.!forum/qiime-forum
