Unite 2020 for Qiime 2

Dear Nicholas Bokulich,
I’m trying to use the new release 2020 of the Unite database for Qiime 2 (https://plutof.ut.ee/#/doi/10.15156/BIO/786385) to create the classifier. When downloading the file, I was expecting a fasta file and a reference taxonomy file. Instead they provided a single file with both taxonomy and ref seqs, but not in .qza format. Could you please check this release and suggest me how to proceed with this?
Tahnk you,

Hello Eduardo,

Welcome to the Qiime forums! :qiime2:

It looks like there are two releases for Unite 8.2. Does this second one work better?

(I moved your post to a new topic so we can better keep track of it)


Hi Colin,
Yes, that’s exactly what I was looking for.
Thank you!
