My problem is that the link to the taxonomy_gg99.qza is broken, nor is this reference taxonomy explained well. May I use the reference taxonomy I trained for my primers? Is this reference taxonomy 16S (515F/806R) specific? I’m guessing so since the previous parts of the workflow referenced the moving pictures tutorial, but it is not clear.
Finally, it appears that the file phylogeny.qza is not a standard .nwk tree file which I will need for further analysis (specifically calculating MNTD using the picante package). Is there was way to create this?
First, I am assuming you have seen this post and the other warnings about this experimental method:
Second, it looks like that file was deleted so the tutorial is out of date (I have raised an issue to get this fixed). For now you might be able to access the old file here but I can’t guarantee if that will work (sorry! I am not a fragment-insertion developer but maybe @Stefan can help if that file does not work)
No — that trained classifier is specific to the qiime feature-classifier classify-sklearn method. It cannot be used with fragment-insertion.
Yes, it uses Greengenes, which is 16S-specific
What happens if you use qiime tools export? The exported file should be .nwk
