I am very new to Qiime 2. I am wanting to convert a .tsv file I have containing an OTU table that was filtered to contain only reference OTUs only, to a .biom file. Then I would like to export that .biom from Qiime 2 and use it with Picrust. I cannot seem to get biom convert to work and I am unsure of how to export the .biom file if I were able to convert it.
We have an open issue to support directly importing this kind of BIOM table, but for now, your workflow makes sense.
Did you take a look at the BIOM docs? It looks like you should be able to run something like the following to convert your TSV BIOM file to an HDF5 BIOM file:
biom convert -i table.tsv -o converted_table.biom --to-hdf5
Then, you can check out the QIIME 2 Importing tutorial for information on how to import this file!
Let us know how that goes for you, and if you get stuck, you know where to find us!
