Problem with summary.tax


#1

Hi all
I’ve been trying to run the summary.tax command to obtain a simple format but I always encounter the same error, and no output file…

I tried all mothur versions from the Mothur.win_64_V1.39.5 to V1.40.5.

I really could use some help.

Thank you
Igor

COMMAND:

summary.tax(taxonomy=Ratinhos_poopMicrobiomechgange_September2018.good.unique.good.filter.unique.precluster.pick.nr_v132.wang.pick.pick.pick.taxonomy, name=Ratinhos_poopMicrobiomechgange_September2018.good.names, group=merge.good.groups, printlevel=6, output=simple)
[ERROR]: Could not open Ratinhos_poopMicrobiomechgange_September2018.good.unique.good.filter.unique.precluster.pick.nr_v132.wang.pick.pick.pick.tax.summary

It took 68 secs to create the summary file for 3499031 sequences.


Output File Names: Ratinhos_poopMicrobiomechgange_September2018.good.unique.good.filter.unique.precluster.pick.nr_v132.wang.pick.pick.pick.tax.summary

It appears mothur is having trouble opening the output file. Some common causes include:

  1. Write Access - Do you have write permissions on the folder?

  2. Space - Have you run out of disk space?
