This is the section of your profile-db/pan-db that contains custom additional information about each of the items in the central section of the interactive interface. When you run anvi-interactive, this data will appear as additional concentric circles.

As also defined in this blog post, this type of data will include information about each item (whether that’s a contig, gene, or bin). This data can be either numerical or categorical and will be imported by the user through the command anvi-import-misc-data.

To change the order that the items are displayed in, take a look at anvi-import-items-order.

For example, this information could describe whether or not each bin reached a certain completion threshold, the e-score of the function annotation on each gene, or different categories that the total length of a contig could fall into (1-1.5 kb, 1.5-2 kb, 2-2.5 kb, and so on).
