A directory of data downloaded from the KEGG database resource for use in function annotation and metabolism estimation.

It is created by running the program anvi-setup-kegg-kofams. Not everything from KEGG is included in this directory, only the information relevant to downstream programs. The most critical components of this directory are KOfam HMM profiles and the MODULES.db database which contains information on metabolic pathways as described in the KEGG MODULES resource.

Programs that rely on this data directory include anvi-run-kegg-kofams and anvi-estimate-metabolism.
