We used the function:
Tree -> Rank… -> class (for both MEGAN5 and 6)
and our tree automatically uncollapsed to the “class” level, with the leaves under “class” rank being highlighted.
However, we realized that those belonging to “subclass”, as defined by NCBI taxonomy (not quite sure why they have this anyway), does not get selected. For example: Under phylum Cyanobacteria, the “subclass” - Oscillatoriophycideae is not selected when rank “class” is chosen.
Is it possible to have the “sub-groups” selected so they can be include in our analysis?
