The set.seed command is used to seed random.
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)
