Requires or uses

contigs-db functions-txt


This program takes in a functions-txt to annotate your contigs-db with functions. Basically, if you have already have the gene functions for the contigs in your contigs-db available in a file, you can import them into anvi’o using this command.

You can find a really comprehesive walkthrough of this program on this blog post about importing functions, including information about built-in anvi’o parsers for InterProScan and the EggNOG database.

If you want to overwrite any function annotations you already have, just add the tag --drop-previous-annotations.
