Hello MengZhang,

Welcome to the forums! :qiime2:

Thank you for looking as past posts about PacBio, and asking about the current status.
Dada2 does support PacBio reads right now, and I asked the developer about when this is coming to Qiime 2. Looks like Qiime 2 still does not support long reads, see:

Until then, you bet is to do the analysis directly in R by following the dada2 1.10 tutorial.

Let me know if you have more questions!
