reading taxonomic table into quiime

I am trying to import a taxonomic/species table into quime2. The table is currently formatted as a .csv file, I can format as .tsv if needed. What should be the layout of the taxonomic table - eg samples as rows and species as columns, or vice versa? What is the syntax to import this table into quiime2? I would like to go on to use the empress tool, that is why I’m importing this.

Thank you!

Hi @Natasha_Palacios
Here is the example of a .tsv taxonomy table. You need at list first two columns.

Here is the command:

qiime tools import \
  --type 'FeatureData[Taxonomy]' \
  --input-path taxonomy.tsv \
  --output-path taxonomy.qza
