UNITE (v.8.0 2018-11-18) Classifiers for QIIME2 Available Here


(Sydney Morgan) #1

Hello everyone,

I have created two new UNITE fungal classifiers for QIIME2 that I’d like to share with you, since the classifiers that I posted previously (UNITE (ver. 7.2) Classifiers) use an old version of UNITE and are also no longer compatible with the newest release of QIIME2 (2019.1). Links were created with the help of @gregcaporaso and @thermokarst.

99% Classifier:
UNITE v.8.0 99% Classifier

Dynamic Classifier:
UNITE v.8.0 Dynamic Classifier

Some pertinent information:

  1. There are two classifiers available. One uses a 99% threshold and the other is ‘dynamic,’ meaning it uses either a 97% or 99% threshold (or somewhere in between) based on which is more accurate for certain lineages of fungi (as determined manually by experts in the field).

  2. UNITE requests that you include the following citation when using this resource: “UNITE Community (2019): UNITE QIIME release for Fungi. Version 18.11.2018. UNITE Community. https://doi.org/10.15156/BIO/786334
