The set.seed command is used to seed random.

Default Options

The only parameter is seed, and it is required.

mothur > set.seed(seed=98765)


Mothur also allows you to set the random seed on any command. This will change the seed globally. For example:

mothur > rarefaction.single(shared=98_lt_phylip_amazon.fn.shared, seed=98765)
