Regarding taxonomic classification Silva vs greengenes

Hi,
My aim is to import qiime2 results into PICRUST2 for function prediction. I want to use the silva database as greengenes haven’t been updated for a long time . Is there a way to import silva assigned results to picrust2?

Hi @razz1618,

PICRUSt2 can work directly with output from your denoised sequences and does not require any mapping to GreenGenes like PICRUSt1. Checkout the paper and tutorial for more details.
