MAKE.BIOM in Mothur

Hello, could someone help me to generate a biom file, which I require to work in PICRUST, it does not accept the files that I need on the command line, generate the files as follows

mothur > classify.seqs(fasta=stability.trim.contigs.good.unique.good.filter.unique.precluster.pick.fasta, count=stability.trim.contigs.good.unique.good.filter.unique.precluster.denovo.vsearch.pick.count_table, reference=gg_13_8_99.fasta,, cutoff=80)

Using 64 processors.

Generating search database… DONE.

It took 133 seconds generate search database.

Reading in the /home/equiroz/Jurel/ taxonomy… DONE.

@chjicu can you help? I know you’ve done piecrust recently

Hi Equiroz,
Would you pleas try the following code?

mothur > classify.otu(list=stability.trim.contigs.good.unique.good.filter.precluster.pick.pick.opti_mcc.list, count=stability.trim.contigs.good.unique.good.filter.precluster.denovo.vsearch.pick.pick.count_table,

mothur > make.biom(shared=stability.trim.contigs.good.unique.good.filter.precluster.pick.pick.opti_mcc.shared, label=0.03,, constaxonomy=stability.trim.contigs.good.unique.good.filter.precluster.pick.pick.opti_mcc.0.03.cons.taxonomy, picrust=97_otu_map.txt)

Our group applied make.biom and PICRUSt in serval projects. Our codes worked well.

Please let me know if I can be of any further help:

Dear Jie

Thank you very much for your tip, it was very useful to me. I have the biom file to work in PICRUSt

Kind regards
