ValueError: could not convert string to float: "whole"? #16

$ lefseGalaxy.txt -c 1 -s 2 -u 3 -o 1000000

attached the file

It looks to me like you have several variables in the dataset that aren’t used in the LEfSe call, which can create problems. If you remove the extra variables and only keep the class, subclass (if applicable), and ID variable (if applicable) in addition to your read data, that may fix the problem.
