How do I use a pretrained classifier?

Good evening!

Welcome to the forums! :qiime2:

You are on the right track and asking all the right questions! First, check out the RESCRIPt tutorial, which is the most complete overview of this process.

Both are good ideas, and RESCRIPt will help you do both :point_down:

Yes, you can avoid the pretraining with a top-hit LCA classifier like classify-consensus-vsearch . All good options!

I'm afraid I've given you much to consider without answering each of your questions. If you have more questions about LCA classifiers or how to use RESCRIPt, let me know.
