I have a fasta file of an assembled genome of a bacterial strain. I would like to identify the species of this strain (or the closest one possible) using the 16s rRNA sequence.
I tried downloading multiple 16s rRNA sequences from the NCBI database and to perform blastn analysis but I don't think I am using the most efficient method.
Do you have any recommendations on what tool to use to identify the species of a particular strain using 16s rRNA ?
Thank you in advance for your help!
