Insects classifier

Hi there,
I would like to make an insect (arthropod) classifier for my project. I would like to know how to download files from NCBI (since it is huge) or other databases. Or link to the tutorial would be helpful.

Thank you

Hi @amm59063,

What marker gene are you using? COI? If so, you can check out these CO1 data resources.

If you search the forum, you’ll find several threads related to the generation of custom classifiers.

Lastly, keep an :eye: out for updates to our recently announced external plugin: RESCRIPt. We hope to add more support for acquiring, formatting, and curating, reference sequence-taxonomy databases.

-Best wishes!
