I have a deblurred reference hit biom table in Qiita but have no biom tables prior to that (I combined a few studies so I only have the combined reference hit artifact). Is there a way to extract the tree used or the representative sequences from deblurred biom table from the artifact so I can use it in my Qiime2 commands?
I’ve tried doing this on my own by importing my biom table and then using the imported .qza to create a tree but I get an error.
Thank you for updating your original question and adding your commands; now I have a better idea of what the confusion is.
Basically, to generate a tree you need to use the sequences, not the biom table, which your second command is doing. To get the sequences from your biom, you need to follow the command here: Importing deblur data from QIITA, once you have your sequences you can import them as a new artifact type FeatureData[Sequence], which will be the input of your second command.
