I want to use my data at genus level so I export it to tsv table in level 6 by the ‘collapse’ command. The problem is the feature name were not classified are have some strange behavior. Some have the ‘taxonomic letter’ in the begining but others not.
“k__Bacteria;p__AD3;c__;o__;f__;g__” - with all the tax letters (k,p,c,o,f,g).
“k__Bacteria;p__Firmicutes;c__Bacilli;__;__;__” with only part of the tax letter (k,p,c) but the letters o,f,g miissing.
My main question is if this a real biology different or seems as technical error?
