The Sample Sequences function, located in the Functions section of the Toolkit panel, allows you to sample the sequences in the input set. This can be useful for separating reads into different sets, or for reducing a very large number of reads to a smaller number (due to software limitations, for example). The output sequences appear in the same order in which they appeared in the original set.

For detailed information and use cases, see the help topic for this function’s sister template, Sample Sequences.

Unlike the sister template, which prompts you to add a file, the Reverse Complement function allows you to specify a sequence source using one of four buttons: File, Sequence Text, Variable and Function. See Write to Results File for more information on using these buttons.
