I was tryin to import SILVA_138.1_SSURef_tax_silva_full_align_trunc.fasta into qiime2 with
$qiime tools import --type 'FeatureData[RNASequence]' --input-path SILVA_138.1/SILVA_138.1_SSURef_tax_silva_full_align_trunc.fasta --output-path SILVA_138.1/silva-138.1-ssu-nr-rna-seq.qza
but it give me this error
#There was a problem importing SILVA_138.1/SILVA_138.1_SSURef_tax_silva_full_align_trunc.fasta:
#SILVA_138.1/SILVA_138.1_SSURef_tax_silva_full_align_trunc.fasta is not a(n) RNAFASTAFormat file:
#Invalid character '.' at position 0 on line 2 (does not match IUPAC characters for this sequence type). Allowed characters are ACGURYKMSWBDHVN.
I know for sure that the the SILVA_database is a RNA files bun i dont know abut the '.' character. I followed the instructions of this post Processing, filtering, and evaluating the SILVA database (and other reference sequence data) with RESCRIPt, they use a different file but i cheeked and the files only differ in the quantity of information. I tried doing it with the same file that the guide but i get the same error, i am confused because they dont give the database any other treatment before import it to qiime2.
I was thinking in replacing the '.' for "-" that are also present in the file, but i am not sure that that will solve anything.
