Database - adejode - 08-08-2016

Hi,

I have followed the Wolves'diet tutorial adapting it to my data.

Now I need to build or choose my database to make a taxonomic assignment for my sequences. My project is quite exploratory and so I would like to have a large reference data base.

I was wondering if it is possible to use the ecotag command directly on genbank ? or is it necessary to fisrt run ecopcr on genbank to create a subset of the whole dataset ?

Thanks
