Sample IDs not in metadata

Hi :slight_smile:

I am running a massive script at the moment and its errored because I haven’t included two of my blanks in the metadata file.

It is still running at the moment but just wanted to know if the rest of my script will work?

I am filtering per reservoir site, and excluding some taxa and running alpha and beta diversity indices. Just wanted to know if it would still work?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!

Hi @ASHooper,

Welcome to the :qiime2: forum!

This depends. I’m (guessing) the issue was in core diversity metrics, or which specific step failed? You may need to compute alpha and beta diversity outside the core-diversity workflow.

Best,
Justine

Thank you Justine,

I had to include the IDs back in the metadata for it to finish.

Thanks for all your help though!

Hi @ASHooper,

I’m sorry you had to re-run/change. If you want help debugging feel free to ask more/again!

Best,
Justine
