QIIME2 on JupyterLab on CyVerse


My name is Alyssa, I work for CyVerse and have recently updated our QIIME2 availability for our users.

Here is a QuickLaunch for our new QIIME2 app on JupyterLab with capabilities for in-line visualizations and access to the Artifact API (note: you’ll need to create a free CyVerse account to access this). In the workspace you will find a Jupyter Notebook containing commands from the moving pictures tutorial and information on how to make the in-line visualizations work:


and documentation on using the app:


I am hoping this makes QIIME2 more accessible for those who want to use it but don’t necessarily have the computational resources or knowledge to make it happen.



Hi Alyssa,

Thanks for sharing the much needed Jupyter notebook for running QIIME2 scripts. Do you have tutorial materials on how to set up and run the notebook locally?

Hi Yanxian,
Thanks for your question.

Here is the link to download the notebook locally:


In order to run this locally and have the inline visualizations work, you will need to open jupyter notebooks from a terminal that is already running qiime2. From the jupyter web interface, navigate to the notebook in your locally directory and it should work from there.

Please let me know if you need any help accessing the notebook.
