as in question title, is it right that make_otu_table (in conda environment) produces biom files in binary code?
We have three machines that have the same behaviour.
We need to operate on it with biom convert, add-metadata and so on...but the 'binary' biom seems not working...
With an older version of Qiime (1.8) the output of that command with the same input files is a 'text' format biom file.
Has anybody noticed this?
