Validity of using NCBI species level annotation of the reference sequences in the silva138.1 database


Since the silva database does not have species-level annotation(species name) of their own for the reference sequences in their database, I tried to annotate the sequences at the species level with the NCBI annotations, which are offered in the original ARB silva database. I think the result looks reasonable for my samples. But I am not sure about the impact it may have on my research. Could you please offer some insight into this issue?

thank you
