I am trying to generate a table of alpha diversity metrics (shannon, pielou, etc). I used the following command to generate a qza that (from what I understand) should contain the shannon diversity values for all of my samples.
From what I understand from the diversity plugin page (see below), this fff-shannon.qza file should have the shannon diversity calculated for all of my samples as a vector.
I want to be able to see these values so that I can put them in a spreadsheet for other uses, but I’m not sure how. Any help would be excellent!
I’ve done the moving pictures tutorial, and I’ve done some stuff with “alpha significance,” but nothing I’ve found seems to tell me how to just get the diversity metric values. Thanks in advance for any help!
