Hi I try to import manifest file, metadata, and actual FASTQ files but gets this message that import not found. I use qiime2 2019.7. Thanks

Hi @HebaHussein-1981,

Can you please post your full command and error message? Im guessing you’re either having a command line wrapping issue (wrong \,) or too many or too many spaces.

I’ll just mention that I’m a huge fan of jupyter notebooks for problems like these, because they let you type out and see the whole command at the same time, and you have a record of exactly what you did.

Best,
Justine

Hi Heba, I echo Justine, you should post your full code and error message -> it may be very simple to correct. Ben

Hi @HebaHussein-1981,

It looks like you’re missing the qiime tools portion of the command. All your qiime commands start with qiime and then have a plug-in name.

If you’re not sure about the command or plugin, you can always do something like

qiime --help

which will list all the plug ins. You can also use the tutorials to check what the commands are. I also think you and Ben or Colin worked through how you would load data from a manifest several weeks ago, so double checking that is also an option.

Best,
Justine

Thanks. yes I forgot tools part and I added it. Now, I have a wired error/ debug about semantic output_dir_fmt = pm.get_directory_format(type)

File “//miniconda3/envs/qiime2-2019.7/lib/python3.6/site-packages/qiime2/sdk/plugin_manager.py”, line 157, in get_directory_format

TypeError: Semantic type SampleData[SingleEndSequencesWithQuality] does not have a compatible directory format.

An unexpected error has occurred:

qiime tools import --type ‘SampleData[SingleEndSequencesWithQuality]’ --input-path /Users/hebahussein/Desktop/Data/manifest-forward.txt --output-path /Users/hebahussein/Desktop/single-end-demux.qza --input-format SingleEndFastqManifestPhred33V2

I think you’re trying to mix two different types of import methods - could you describe to us what you’re trying to do? We can try to work through it? Also, if you take a look @ the specific parts of the tutorial which are relevant, you will find this code:

qiime tools import
–type ‘SampleData[SequencesWithQuality]’
–input-path se-33-manifest
–output-path single-end-demux.qza
–input-format SingleEndFastqManifestPhred33V2

Please pay attention to the --type modifier, this would appear different than your code. Ben
