I am trying to import a reference database for the gene nifH into QIIME that is available on this github page (https://github.com/moyn413/nifHdada2), specifically: nifH_dada2_phylum_v1.1.0.fasta
However, when I use the following command in QIIME:
qiime tools import --type 'FeatureData[Sequence]' --input-path /home/qiime2/Desktop/ZehrTaxonomy/nifH_dada2_phylum_v1.1.0.fasta --output-path /home/qiime2/Desktop/ZehrTaxonomy/Zehr_nifHTaxonomy.qza
I get the following error:
There was a problem importing /home/qiime2/Desktop/ZehrTaxonomy/nifH_dada2_phylum_v1.1.0.fasta:
/home/qiime2/Desktop/ZehrTaxonomy/nifH_dada2_phylum_v1.1.0.fasta is not a(n) DNAFASTAFormat file:
ID on line 9 is a duplicate of another ID on line 7.
I'm QUITE certain that this is a formatting issue, but I'm not certain how to solve it...
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
