I’d really like to do some analyses in mothur that are not available in QIIME 2. However, I would like to use my OTU, taxonomy, and tree files that are already created in QIIME 2. Is there an easy way to do this?
I tried biom.info and make.shared commands in mothur but neither opened with my QIIME 2 biom files. (Are these commands compatible with QIIME 2 biom files? I’m not sure which version of biom files QIIME 2 uses but I do know QIIME 2 biom files differ from QIIME 1 in that they don’t contain taxonomic information…QIIME 2 has a .tsv file for taxonomy + .biom file for the OTU table).
Alternatively, I can convert OTU and taxonomy files to .txt files. Would that work with mothur?
Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
