q2_SCNIC perfomance

Hi,
I have installed q2-SCNIC in qiime2-2021.2 via ‘pip install…’ (conda install displayed disagreements between the actual python 3.6 version and required v3.5). The test dataset from this forum could be easily processed, but a considerably small dataset from environmental microbiomes took quite long to be processed in the ‘qiime SCNIC make-modules-on-correlations’ step (over 4 hours to create the collapsed table, the other outputs were not created.

Is such long processing time expected or could it be due to python incompatibilties (see github: q2-SCNIC in qiime2-2021.2 · Issue #11 · shafferm/q2-SCNIC · GitHub)
