Simple questions about the qiime2 tutorial

1.Could you explain what is the "" mean at the end of first 2 lines?
2.In the "Fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) study: an exercise" -obtain data, you directly use the qza file import,
the data from the illumina was fastq, how to solve the problem?

Thank you so much.Qiong

Hello Qiong,

Great questions.

The \ characters are the ends of the lines, let you spread out a linux command over several lines. For example, these two commands are will do the exact same thing.

qiime demux summarize \
  --i-data demux.qza \
  --o-visualization demux.qzv
qiime demux summarize --i-data demux.qza  --o-visualization demux.qzv

The top command is easier to read because it’s on three lines, and we use \ to do this.

You can import your fastq files by following the importing tutorial.

Let us know if you have any questions!
