I try to get consensus sequences persample. When i do classify.otu, i have given the persample parameter but it creates seperate file for each sample. But i would like to get the same information in a single file. is it possible with mothur? kindly let me know. thanks in advance.

When you use the persample option with classify.otu, a consensus taxonomy is found for each sample. Mothur separates these results into individual files for each sample. We don’t currently have a summary file option, but thanks for the feature request!

Thanks for your kind reply. It would be nice to have that option in future. It is very laborious to combine those files manually. Do you have any other suggestion?

Sorry, I don’t think there is any easier way around this at the moment, :frowning:
