I have a simple question: the NCBI "16S ribosomal RNA sequences (Bacteria and Archaea)" database contains DNA sequences of the 16S RNA gene right?
My confusing start because of the name: 16S ribosomal RNA sequences, but those are not RNA sequences, right?
(since I can use DNA sequences to blast in that database I assume its DNA or the 16S rRNA gene)
or am I missing something here?
