Adding metadata to .biom files

You can do this within QIIME (e.g. after initializing macqiime). The documentation has been changing on the http://biom-format.org website, but QIIME 1.7 should use the following command structure:

add_metadata.py -i /Users/hollybik/Downloads/otu_table_mc2_w_tax_no_pynast_failures.biom.txt  -o /Users/hollybik/Downloads/otu_table_mc2_w_tax_no_pynast_failures.biom_metadataMiXScompliant.txt -m /Users/hollybik/Dropbox/Visualization/AquariumSampleMap8_MiXScompliant.txt
