Qiime1 installation

I have trying to install qiime1 using the following command
conda create -n qiime1 python=2.7 qiime matplotlib=1.4.3 mock nose -c bioconda
but it errors saying python 2.7 does not work anymore?
Is there a way around this? cause I need to combine multiple sample fasta files using add_qiime_labels.py
Thank you !

Why not import your FASTA data into QIIME 2 with qiime tools import …, and then simply use qiime feature-table merge-seqs?

I was under the impression that you cannot use qiime2 for analysis when you have fasta files for samples i.e., in this project I have 935 fasta files for crohns and healthy individuals. I was trying to combine them into a single fasta file for further analysis? Please, let me know if my logic here is wrong cause I’m new to qiime and metagenomic analysis.


Oh right… that is why you need add_qiime_labels.py to get your files into this format. Sorry about that. :man_facepalming:

But once you have that you can proceed with the procedure outlined in the link I provided.

Perhaps run QIIME 1 via a docker container? There are quite a few out there. If not, perhaps someone on the forum has some code to share?

Hello again

So I tried using conda which did not work as python 2.7 is not supported anymore but I looked up qiime installation and I was able to make it using virtual machine for qiime. Thanks!


Thanks for letting us know @mallika. I’m glad you were able to get the virtual machine to work. :tada:
