QIIME (pronounced "chime") stands for Quantitative Insights Into Microbial Ecology. 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. QIIME has been applied to single studies based on billions of sequences from thousands of samples.

Additional Information

If you encounter an 'Invalid DISPLAY variable' error using some qiime2 tools like 'qiime demux summarize' set the default matplotlib backend to Agg in your personal configuration with

echo "backend: Agg" > ~/.config/matplotlib/matplotlibrc


If you publish research that uses qiime2 you have to cite it as follows:
