Hi community (@fbeghini ) I am using MetaPhlAn3 and getting some output like:
k__Bacteria|p__Firmicutes|c__Clostridia|o__Clostridiales|f__Clostridiales_unclassified|g__Lawsonibacter 2|1239|186801|186802||2172004 0.46367
Here, we are getting
genus level classification “Lawsonibacter”, but the
family remains unclassified (same thing happened for many other taxa as well). This is leading to downstream analysis problem. When I tried to load it in STAMP software, it is showing some
ERROR and not importing my stamp compatible profile file (
.spf file ) :
Error reading profile file Child g__Gemella has an unclassified parent.
The same type of profiling problemWhy am I not getting family but getting genus level resolution? Isn’t it strange???
