I am going to train my classifier. Based on this I need two elements: the reference sequences and the corresponding taxonomic classifications. I downloaded the reference sequences (Greengenes 13_8 most recent) from here
1- I was wondering where can I obtain the corresponding taxonomic classification. Can I use the one provided here?
2- The file I downloaded (Greengenes 13_8 most recent), after decompressing it I notice that there are many files in it. Which one should I use? Or I guess I should import it as a compressed file for traning my classifier?
Sorry for my silly questions
