Error importing FeatureData[Taxonomy]


I have recived from a collaborator working with phyloseq a taxa data, where each taxonomic level is set up in a different column. I have used CONCAT command in excel to transform the table to the qiime format where all taxonomy level orgnaised in one string (head of table):

However, I do get an error while trying to import as qza (following transforming the txt. to biom.):
An unexpected error has occurred:

'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0x89 in position 0: invalid start byte

See above for debug info.

Any ideas?

You do not need to transform taxonomy table to biom before importing it as taxonomy file. Please, refer to the "Importing data" tutorial for the right commands and format to use.
