Welcome to the forum, @taka-aoki!
Detailed help for any QIIME 2 command can be accessed by activating a QIIME 2 environment, and entering
qiime <plugin> <action> --help.
Try activating your QIIME 2 environment and entering
qiime tools import --help, and see if that answers some of your questions.
There’s more information on how
import works in the importing tutorial. It’s focused mostly on raw data imports, because most imports are raw data. It is, however, possible to import many different types (and formats) of data into QIIME 2.
The docs, generally, are a good resource for understanding how QIIME 2 works and why. These two pages might also be useful.
Thank you very much for your time.
I’m sorry, my English is not good.
1.qiime tools import --help
3.docs（Semantic Types、Core Concepts）
I read 1, 2 and 3.
“qiime tools import”
I couldn’t find any sample data or tutorials to try the code if I put “SampleData[AlphaDiversity]” in the argument of “–type”.
It has features, but no detailed procedure description??
Thanks for making an effort, @taka-aoki!
Because most people import raw data (not alpha diversity results), there is no specifically tailored example in our documentation. One way to get raw alpha diversity data would be to
export that data from an available artifact which contains
SampleData[AlphaDiversity], look at that data directly, and then experiment with re-importing it.
Download an alpha diversity result from the Moving Pictures tutorial - for example,
qiime tools export \
--input-path shannon_vector.qza \
Open the resulting
.tsv with your preferred tool (vim, nano, excel, sheets, etc.) to inspect its contents.
qiime tools import on the
.tsv using the type you specified above.
