How to plot a taxa bar plot from bracken?

Hello Everyone,

I am new to Microbiome analysis. So I have an abundance file produced from Bracken. I want to plot a taxa bar plot of that file using Qiime2.
I tried converting the bracken output file into an biom file then into a qza file but it was empty.
So can anyone guide me how to plot a taxa bar plot using bracken file.

Hi @nikhilp,

Welcome to the :qiime2: forum!

I don't have much experience with handling bracken files, but here's what I found from some brief poking around. The kraken-biom tool seems like it should work for converting bracken files to BIOM format. I've never used this tool personally, but it looks like it is still actively maintained on Github - this would be where I'd recommend starting. If you run into any issues you can always file an issue on that repository, or try to connect with one of the developers who maintain that project.

Hope this helps!

Cheers :lizard:
