Metadata in QIIME 2

Thanks, Matt!

It works for me; my question is: it seems not possible to put other sequence information in the manifest file, or it cannot be imported. However, those info (like sample time, type, location ) that categorizes samples are very important for downstream analyses, is it possible to put extra info into the manifest file?

Thank you so much!

Hi @Harry!

That is correct - a manifest file is not the same thing as a metadata file, so we wouldn’t want to put these kinds of data in a sequence manifest!

Have you had a chance to look at the Metadata Tutorial on the docs? Metadata is a first-class citizen :merperson: in Q2-ville :houses: — it is front-and-center in many QIIME 2 Methods and Visualizers — just take a look at the Moving Pictures tutorial for a handful of great examples!

Happy QIIMEing! :tada::t_rex:
