How to extract the taxonoomic composition of a single sample?

Dear all,
I would like to know the exact taxonomic composition of one of my samples. I mean I would like to know, for example at genus level, how many sequences of that sample are assigned to each identified genera. I tried to export that information from the taxa bar plot but it’s impossible to read the information (the taxonomy was obtained through Greengenes).
Thanks for helping

Hi @alfanon,

You might be looking for taxa collapse which will give you a new feature-table collapsed to a taxonomic rank (say genus). You can then export that and convert it to TSV via biom convert ... --to-tsv.

Is that roughly what you are looking to do?
