This artifact contains information about the functions of the genes in your contigs-db.

It is a table within your contigs-db that contains functional annotations for your genes.

To get one of these for your contigs-db, you can either import it (using anvi-import-functions) or make one yourself by running your contigs against one of two databases available in anvi’o:

You can also use EggNOG or InterProScan and then import the results into anvi’o, as described in this blog post.

This is used to run anvi-analyze-synteny.

You can also use anvi-export-functions to obtain a file containing these functional annotations through a functions-txt artifact.
