Details for QIIME (hide)

About:QIIME is an open source software package for comparison and analysis of microbial communities, primarily based on high-throughput amplicon sequencing data (such as SSU rRNA) generated on a variety of platforms, but also supporting analysis of other types of data (such as shotgun metagenomic data). QIIME takes users from their raw sequencing output through initial analyses such as OTU picking, taxonomic assignment, and construction of phylogenetic trees from representative sequences of OTUs, and through downstream statistical analysis, visualization, and production of publication-quality graphics.

There are two different ways to run QIIME v1.9. Both instructions are provided here.

A. Using conda:

## set environment

export PATH=/programs/miniconda2/bin:$PATH

source activate qiime1

#After you are done

souce deactivate

B. using VM:

This program runs only on BioHPC workstations marked "VM Supported". To run the program on one of these machines, please follow these steps:

1. Reserve a computer, turn on VNC. (From, login . At "my reservations" page, click "Connect VNC" next to your reserved computer")

2. Connect to your reserved computer by VNC. (, click "Access", read under "Access with VNC"). You might see a window "Authentication is required ...", ignore it. You can drag this warning window to the edge.

3. Open terminal window in VNC (right click and select "open terminal"). Copy the latest version  of QIIME into the local directory. (xxxxx is your user name)

mkdir /workdir/xxxxx

cp /programs/QIIME-1.9.1-amd64.vdi /workdir/xxxxx

4. Start VirtualBox.

From terminal, type "VirtualBox". Then you can either follow the youtube video, or the instruction at, starting from point 3 (i.e., skip the installation of the VirtualBox because BioHPC machines come with it already installed and skip the download of the QIIME1 image because you just copied it to /workdir in step 3 above).
