Hello all,

I'm new to bioinformatics and I'm doing my research work with 16S rDNA NGS analysis.I have 16S rDNA sequenced data in fastq format. Now I stuck with picard tool 's Mark Duplicates step. In here I need a reference genome for alignment. I use NCBI 16S microbial DB for Blast step.

Can anyone help me to solve this?

So your reference genome is the NCBI 16S microbial sequences, no ? However, I don't really understand why you use markduplicate along with blast... Can you provide a bit more details about your workflow and what you want to achieve ?

I think you're probably jumping in wrong to this and using tools that you know the name of.

If you have a 16S rRNA dataset you probably want to use qiime/mothur, and I recomend working through this first:
