Integration of new data into existing analysis

I am looking for an automated process where new samples seamlessly integrate into the existing analysis without manual intervention. I am working on a longitudinal study where as the sample size increases I have to start with zero whenever I start with the data analysis. Is there a way to do this type of analysis in QIIME?

Thanks

Hi @Shreya,
I dont think there is currently anything that would do this!

My advice is to run the new sequencing run through dada2 and then merge your new feature table with your existing tables!

This means you wont have to run the time consuming data processing commands again. However, make sure you are using the same parameters so that the new data is comparable to the existing data.
