Problem preparing Q2 data for use with BugBase

Hi @Mehrbod_Estaki,

Thank you for this tutorial. I am also trying to get Bugbase compatible biom table, but when I am using the following command "echo -e "#OTUID\ttaxonomy" | cat - 97_otu_taxonomy.txt > 97_otu_taxonomy.txt", it just run forever, and there is no resultant file. Can you please let know what I am missing?

Thank you,
Aditya

Hi @Aditya ,
I just moved this to a new topic from the original QIIME 2 to BugBase tutorial.

Can you describe what you mean by running forever?

This command is simply replacing the original 97_otu_taxonomy.txt with the added new headers. So you won't see a new file, though perhaps that is not an ideal approach on my end. Regardless, it should take no time at all. Type head 97_otu_taxonomy.txt, if you see #OTUID and taxonomy in the first row then it has worked properly and you can move on.

p.s I updated that tutorial a bit just now.

Hi @Mehrbod_Estaki,

Thank you so much! I was able to successfully run my files in Bugbase.

With regards,
Aditya
