Taxonomy assignment


(Lmanchon) #1

–Hi,

Do you think the best way to assign taxonomy is to use qiime BLAST or use the pre-trained classifiers such as gg-13-8-99-515-806-nb-classifier.qza available in data resources page on docs.qiime2.org ?

thank you –

Hi @lmanchon,
It’s hard to describe ‘best’ but perhaps this paper can give you some insight into comparing the various methods including BLAST vs the classifiers.
