I’m trying to run alpha and beta diversity analyses with data I’ve downloaded from Qiita and
I’m receiving a metadata loading error. Along with the Qiita artifacts, I also downloaded the QIIME map and using that as my metadata file for QIIME2. I’m running QIIME2 version 2018.11 and installed it using conda.
Here is the command I’m trying to run:
qiime diversity core-metrics-phylogenetic
Here is the error I received:
There was an issue with loading the file sample-metadata.tsv as metadata:
Metadata file path doesn’t exist, or the path points to something other than a file. Please check that the path exists, has read permissions, and points to a regular file (not a directory): metadata.tsv
There may be more errors present in the metadata file. To get a full report, sample/feature metadata files can be validated with Keemei: https://keemei.qiime2.org
Find details on QIIME 2 metadata requirements here: https://docs.qiime2.org/2018.11/tutorials/metadata/
I validated my metadata on keemei, here is my metadata file https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14L7D1kZtKqf6waCcsZsjJ96oSYlZJ3abkiY_ntI4ilw/edit?usp=sharing
I also checked it to make sure it is following proper metadata format and I’m not sure why it is not working. I’m a beginner, so any advice/explanation would be great.
