First, here is why I am using this command.
I have Salmonella in a positive control.
Using the trad SOP, I have Salmonella after classify.seqs.
But when I classify my OTU, they are not there.
The only way to find them is to cluster at 0.005 (they get merged at 0.01).
I am not a fan of these almost ASV and not a fan of dada2 also (loosing almost all my sequences and gives perfect positive control which is technically impossible to have a pure positive control without any contamination at all).
So, I went for cluster.spli to make OTU after spliting by taxonomy at the genus level, so that I can keep my Salmonella (well I loved them).
This is the commands I ran and what I got.
mothur > dist.seqs(fasta=phytosynthese2021.trim.contigs.good.unique.good.filter.unique.precluster.pick.pick.fasta,cutoff=0.03)
mothur > cluster.split(column=current, count=current, taxonomy=current, splitmethod=classify, taxlevel=6, delta=0, iters=300,cutoff=0.03)
So there is no clustering as I get 163 578 OTU from 163 741 unique.
The weird ting is when I run this command only in my positive control, I am going from 350 uniques to 179 OTU…
More over, when I run mke.shared, I get a weird output (why does the number of sequences to not match??) and even though the log say it made a .shared file, I do not see it!
mothur > make.shared(list=current,count=current,label=0.03)

So well, any thought?
