Hi there

I am terrible in R - its my worst nightmare. And i only post this because I am desperate. 

I have a .biom file (json version; format: Biological Observation Matrix 1.0.0). However when trying to import to RStudio I get an error message:

Error in read_biom(biom_file = BIOMfilename) : 
  Both attempts to read input file:

either as JSON (BIOM-v1) or HDF5 (BIOM-v2).
Check file path, file name, file itself, then try again.

I'm not entirely certain what I need to change or if i'm not using the correct packages.
