This program lets you export miscellaneous data of your choosing into a text file, which can be imported into another anvi’o project using anvi-import-misc-data. You can export the same types of data that you can import with that function. These are also listed below.

If your misc-data is associated with a specific data group, you can provide that data group to this program with the -D flag.

Data types you can export

From a pan-db or profile-db: items, layers, layer orders

From a pan-db or profile-db, you can export

anvi-export-misc-data -p profile-db \ --target-data-table items

anvi-export-misc-data -p pan-db \ --target-data-table layers

anvi-export-misc-data -p profile-db \ --target-data-table layer_orders

From a contigs-db: nucleotide and amino acid information

From a contigs-db, you can export

anvi-export-misc-data -c contigs-db --target-data-table nucleotides

anvi-export-misc-data -c contigs-db --target-data-table amino_acids
