Hello @Moh,

Welcome to the forums! :wave:

First, here's how you install Qiime 2 inside a Docker container:

There's something even better! A step-by-step tutorial by @.thermokarst that shows you how to run the Moving-Pictures tutorial from within the docker container created above! :whale:

Let us know if you have any questions about how to set this up!

if you have the proper guideline please send

As far as I know, the docker install guide for 2023.2 and the tutorial listed above are the best resources.

If anyone has a newer guide or questions about that old guide, feel free to post that here!


Nothing is given on that web page for the beginner.

That's correct. Docker is a cloud-native orchestration service, and this does expect some baseline knowledge of both Linux and containers.

For beginners, I would recommend a Native install of Qiime2 or run Qiime2 online using Galaxy, no install needed!

The brand new QIIME 2 Cancer Microbiome Intervention Tutorial is also beginner friendly.
