Plugin error from taxa


After demultiplexing my data, I wanted to filter them. I followed the commands on the “taxonomic section” of the moving pictures tutorial to get the “taxonomy.qza”. Then I ran that script :

qiime taxa filter-table \
  --i-table table.qza \
  --i-taxonomy taxonomy.qza \
  --p-exclude mitochondria,chloroplast \
  --o-filtered-table table-no-mitochondria-no-chloroplast.qza

and got the following error :

Plugin error from taxa:

  Argument to parameter 'table' is not a subtype of FeatureTable[Frequency].

What would you suggest?

Thank you in advance!

Hi @leila! Sorry to hear things aren’t working for you. What type is the file table.qza? You can check that by running:

$ qiime tools peek table.qza

I suspect that while the file is labelled to indicate a feature table of frequencies, it is actually something else (maybe a feature table of relative frequencies? maybe feature data sequences?)

Thanks! :t_rex:
