How to train classier

Good evening to all the qiime2 community. I am new to bioinformatics and need some help.
I want to train the classifier with data from NCBI, tath I downloaded is the file16S_ribosomal_RNA.tar.gz from new Experimental databases. From here Index of /blast/db
I have 2 questions

  1. can I actually training the classifier with data from ncbi?
  2. From what I have seen the file must be of the .fasta format is there any way to convert them from .tar.gz to .fasta? in linux
    Anyone who can help me thankς a lot :slight_smile:
    with much love

Hi @iordanis, welcome to :qiime2:!

You certainly can!

Fortunately, with the help of the RESCRIPt plugin, you can follow allong with this tutorial. Which makes use of the SSU data available from NCBI RefSeq Target Loci.
