I have done open reference clustering (99% identity) for my sample. After taxonomic assignment, I got that taxonomy file and respective feature_biom_table (–o-clustered-table). In biom table 18336 otu id was there, whereas the taxonomy feature id was 39258. That 18336 otu id was present randomly among that 39258 id.
or_table.from_biom (12).txt (4.2 MB) or_taxonomy.tsv (4.9 MB)
Should I exclude the remaining the 20,922 feature id which has no corresponding otu id ?
