I was excited to see the 2021.2 version including q2-types that can read proteins/amino acid sequences. But I am getting errors importing an unaligned .fasta file, which contains typical fasta headers and amino acid sequence lines. I reference this announcement about protein types (QIIME 2 2021.2 is now available).
Can I confirm the formats/q2-types listed in the announcement are immediately available? For instance, when running a qiime tools import command, it yields an error: No format: ProteinFASTAFormat. The import command I ran is below
$qiime tools import --type ‘SampleData[Sequences]’ --input-path protein_fasta_qiime2_test/non_chimeric_prot_corr_q2_import_test.fasta --output-path sequences.qza --input-format ProteinFASTAFormat
Let me know if I can provide any other details to help clarify the error or workflow. For example, running the command below does not yield a list with either “ProteinFASTAFormat” or ProteinSequence" or “FASTAFormat”… only “DNAFASTAFormat”
$qiime tools import --show-importable-formats
Thanks in advance for the assistance!
