I performed a MEGABLAST analysis a few days ago, but I am now unable to automatically retrieve organism names. The Megablast output file contains GI numbers, but no name of the organisms. I have now been trying to automatically get the names of the organisms identified with the Megablast for several days but I can't do it. 2 months ago I was said to use Fetch taxonomic representation tool during a Workshop on metagenomic analyzes, but I can't find this tool now. I was then said to use Kraken, I tried to use it but I couldn't because no option is available to select database. Am I doing something wrong? Then, somebody told me to use and I found the Fetch Taxonomic Represntation tool in the section Old Metagenomics. Is this tool obsolete or why does it not appear in What is the difference between and I am a little confused. I am now trying to move my different files from to the other but I did not find any other option than to download all my files from the first and upload them all to the second, so it is taking a very very long time and I am not sure that this is what I need to do. I am not sure I am doing things as I should do.

Can somebody help me?
