Hello QIIME2 users and developers,
There is a discussion on preparing (and possibly benchmarking) the SILVA v132 database for use in the
In the current 2018.11 QIIME2 release, the SILVA database does come packaged with the plugin (for me, in
miniconda2/envs/qiime2-2018.11/share/fragment-insertion/ref/) however this contains SILVA v128. I assume that many users, like me, would be using SILVA v132 and may have already done some analysis with this version of the database.
I’d like to suggest/request that the SILVA v132 database be appropriately prepared and packaged with a future release of QIIME2 so that SILVA users can utilise the
q2-fragment-insertion plugin with the newest SILVA database.
