How can I visualize .tax.summary file?

So after processing my data I ended up with this .tax.summary file. Is there a way to visualize this data to make a taxonomic bar plot? Or a heatmap like this (attached image)?

The attached image is from QIIME2 but I want to come up with a similar graph, if possible, using Mothur for comparison. I hope you can help me with this. Thank you.

I’m not a fan of heatmaps like these. Humans are pretty horrible at resolving differences in colors like is demanded here. I have an entire R tutorial built around visualizing microbiome data. The last section is how to make box and whisker plots to compare communities. You might find it useful…
