Microbial 'omics

Brought to you by

anvi-export-locus [program]

This program helps you cut a 'locus' from a larger genetic context (e.g., contigs, genomes). By default, anvi'o will locate a user-defined anchor gene, extend its selection upstream and downstream based on the –num-genes argument, then extract the locus to create a new contigs database. The anchor gene must be provided as –search-term, –gene-caller-ids, or –hmm-sources. If –flank-mode is designated, you MUST provide TWO flanking genes that define the locus region (Please see –flank-mode help for more information). If everything goes as plan, anvi'o will give you individual locus contigs databases for every matching anchor gene found in the original contigs database provided. Enjoy your mini contigs databases!.
