I’m recently considering to start with Qiime2… I work in linux with Qiime 1.9.1 (natively installed), it could be a problem (with compatibility or else) if I install Qiime 2?
Since I’m going to start I don’t like to lose functionability of the Qiime I already have!
I’d like to know if someone did it before or if you know this may be an issue?
That’s the beauty of working with conda environments, they are self containing meaning you can easily install 10 different versions of qiime1/2 and they will not interfere with each other.
The usual installation guide with Qiime2 puts this into its own conda environment which you can call with
source activate <env_name> then deactivate with
conda deactivate, run
conda enva list to see a list of all your environments and then activate another one from the list as you please.
I’m going to try it! Thanks so so much for the answer!
