Is it possible to get out-format 6 and out-format 102 without running Diamond twice?


New member
From my understanding, using out-format 102 reports the taxonomic classification following LCA analysis, and while out-format 6 can report tentative taxonID's it will list all possible taxons but will not do the LCA analysis. I want both the LCA output as well as information on what protein(s) was mapped. Is this possible without running the program twice for each sample?

Thank you!

It is currently not possible without running the program twice. But this would certainly be a useful feature so I will try to get it implemented, but it may take 2-3 weeks.
