[ERROR]: You are missing (

bioinformatics newbie here. I recently encountered this error: You are missing (, even when I simply input an enter. Could anyone help? I tried to submit a batch work to the sever.

Hi there! It looks like you’re trying to run a batch script. You actaully want to run the batch script outside of mothur. Probably like this from the command prompt (i think you’re on windows)…

% mothur.exe Mothur14

The % is the prompt and does not need to be retyped. If you are actually trying to run a slurm job (I see you using sbatch) then you need to do that outside of mothur, likely from the command prompt as well.
