Databases () | Amplicon-Based Analysis | Set Up Amplicon-Based Reference Database ().
This tool takes as input QIIME-format fasta files (typically clustered into OTUs at 99, 97, 94, and 90 percent similarity) and corresponding taxonomy mapping files, where each line of the taxonomy file contains an OTU name and its taxonomy. The OTU name and its taxonomy must be separated by a tab character while taxonomy levels are separated with semicolons. For example, the following line
indicates that the OTU o123 belongs to the class Sphingobacteria and that its taxonomy is specified only up to the class level. For more information about QIIME format, see http://qiime.org/index.html.
