SEPP is now Py3 compatible, and I’ll be working on a plugin for it in the next few days. This method performs fragment insertion, and allows for a) avoiding construction of a de novo phylogeny for amplicons and b) avoiding explicit taxonomy assignment. Before laying down code, it may be nice to discuss some use cases, methods, visuals, naming, etc. The biggest question I have right now though is whether this should be q2-fragment-insertion or q2-sepp.
