Manual modification of consensus taxonomy


Is it possible to manually modify the consensus taxonomy file of OTUs and use the modified consensus taxonomy for making a summary taxonomy table? If it is possible, how?

I was thinking of making a summary table using taxonomy which I get by classifying representative sequences of OTUs based on best hits in seqmatch or blastn.

Of course I could get the seqmatch or blastn-“classification” for the whole set of sequences and then go on with that in classify.otu-command but I was just thinking of a “lighter” way.
