Converting Representative Sequences From .qza to FASTA

Hi, I’m trying to export a .qza file of representative sequences as a fasta file so I can run it through BLAST. Does anyone know the command to convert the file? I can’t find it anywhere and I’m really new to QIIME so i don’t know how everything works yet. Thanks!

Hi @rbfeldman,
The exporting documentation is misleading because it gives examples for two specific types… but if you look closely, you will see that both use the same exact command! This command will export anything and is not type-specific:

 qiime tools export \
  --input-path any-kind-of.qza \
  --output-path exported-file

I hope that helps!
