Synchronizing template and taxonomy files for classify.seqs

I am making template and taxonomy files for the CO1 marker to use classify.seqs on my query sequences. I was able to compile and format the files from sequences downloaded from BOLD however, when I run classify.seqs I get an error such as “‘GWOTI939-12’ is in your template file and is not in your taxonomy file. Please correct.”. I assume this means that there are IDs in my template file that are not in my taxonomy file. Is there a way I can synch the two files?

Thank you,

You would need to do this yourself - but yes, the sequences in your fasta file need to be represented in the taxonomy file. You should look at some of the reference taxonomies we provide for 16S rRNA gene sequences to get a sense of what this should look like.
