classifier for fungi data analysis

Hello everyone,

I am trying to analyse data from fungi from the genus Fusarium, I used the primers Fa 150 and Ra-2 to amplify 430bp of the elongation factor as done in Cobo-Diaz et al., 2019 (doi: 10.1093/femsec/fiz084). Does someone knows of a classifier I could use for this region in QIIME2 and perhaps a tutorial that I could follow in order to make the analysis work?


Hi @AnaBanana,

I am unaware of an existing reference set or classifier for this marker gene. Perhaps someone else in the forum will reply here. :busts_in_silhouette:

However, we do have this nice plugin called RESCRIPt that enables you to make your own reference set :books:. I think this tutorial would be the most beneficial:

Some other general examples can be found on the forum, e.g.:



Many thanks Mike! This was a very helpful solution to create my own classifier for the elongation factor specific region!
