Background: Taxonomic classification of marker-gene sequences is an important step in microbiome analysis. Results: We present q2-feature-classifier (, a QIIME 2 plugin containing several novel machine-learning and alignment-based methods for taxonomy classification. We evaluated and optimized several commonly used classification methods implemented in QIIME 1 (RDP, BLAST, UCLUST, and SortMeRNA) and several new methods implemented in QIIME 2 (a...[Show more]
