Hi, I have built a rooted tree with other program. How can I import it with .tre file into qiime 2 format .qza to do diversity analyses? I found there is only a way to import unrooted tree in “importing data”. Thanks!
Hi @liubaily! You can import a
tre file representing a rooted tree by running something like the following:
qiime tools import \ --input-path tree.tre \ --output-path my-rooted-tree.qza \ --type 'Phylogeny[Rooted]'
A few things to point out - this should look pretty similar to the importing doc for an unrooted tree - importing data in QIIME 2 generally takes on the same type of command, with minor variations. The important thing here is that the
--input-path references the file with your rooted tree, and that the
--type is set to a
Phylogeny, instead of
Unrooted. This is how QIIME 2 knows the difference between the two, and helps you make good decisions throughout your analysis! Make sense? Thanks!
Thanks @thermokarst! That’s really helpful!
