Hi User

I am constantly getting an error while performing qiime gneiss ols-regression. "Detected zero variance balances - double check your table for unobserved features". Can anyone give me some suggestion now I can get rid of the obsolete features?

I used the following command:

qiime gneiss ols-regression
--p-formula "Nitrogen_Month"
--i-table Reduced_Features/MiSeq_data_table_min_8_feature_filtered_table_balances.qza
--i-tree Reduced_Features/MiSeq_data_table_min_8_feature_filtered_table_hierarchy.qza
--m-metadata-file Inputs/MetaData_MiSeq.txt

I am attaching the actual reduced feature file that is been used to generate the balance and hierarchy files.

Hey there @dheeman00 - just wanted to let you know we are looking into this issue right now, but it might be a few days before you hear back from someone. Stay tuned! :t_rex:

@dheeman00, looks like you will need to filter out those zero-variance features. I'd take a look at the qiime feature-table filter-features command

There are a couple of posts that discuss this problem in more detail

@thermokarst Thank you for looking into the issue. Just a query. Is it a sort of a flaws in the qiime 2 platform.

Hi There

Thank you for your post. In the second suggestion you have mentioned that there some values of singleton and doubleton. Is it possible to know how I can identify them form my dataset. I could not upload the balance file as it is bigger than the file uploading limit. But some suggestions will be helpful.

Hi @thermokarst and @mortonjt

Thank you for your suggestions. I was able to resolve the issues. I figured out the issue was not that complicated just proper explanation was missed out, which you guys have provided.
