This tool will compute a a taxonomic profiling index from a reference database. Indexes are then used as input to the Taxonomic Profiling tool. To run the tool, go to:
Databases () | Taxonomic Analysis | Create Taxonomic Profiling Index
In the first dialog, select one or several nucleotide databases, for example downloaded with the Download Microbial Reference Database tool (figure 18.9).
The output is an index file and a report as seen in figure 18.10. The report list the number of sequence and basepairs that were indexed.
