18s analysis with Qiime2

Hello everyone ,
I wonder, is there any pipeline in QIIME2 to analysis 18s data ?


Hi @pshtiwan_babane, the approach would be no different than using a typical 16S rRNA gene analysis pipeline. The easiest approach would be to use the SILVA reference database as it contains the Small Sub Unit (SSU) sequences for both the 16S and 18S rRNA genes.

QIIME 2 formatted SILVA reference files and classifiers are available on the Data resources page.
