When using qiime2-2018.2 and performing:
qiime feature-table summarize
The feature table qzv has some strange sorting behavior see the below pics:
It first sorts by sample ID while they are all fully numeric. It then begins to sort by sequence count when the sample ids become alphanumeric.
By chance was this feature table the product of two feature tables merged? I noticed a few versions ago that when I merged 2 tables the sorting didn’t follow the usual Highest reads >> Lowest Reads format anymore. I totally forgot about reporting that till I saw your post.
These come from one feature table (not merged).
Thanks for the reports, @Arron_Shiffer & @Mehrbod_Estaki.
As you mentioned @Arron_Shiffer, it looks like the table is being sorted by Sample ID, rather than Sequence Count. This looks like it is a result of how
pandas handles numeric identifiers. I have opened an issue on the relevant issue tracker to put a forced-sort on our radar. We will update this issue when an enhancement is released. Stay tuned!
