anvi-profile [program]

Creates a single anvi'o profile database. The default input to this program is a BAM file. When it is run on a BAM file, depending on the user parameters, the program quantifies coverage per nucleotide position (and averages them out per contig), calculates single-nucleotide, single-codon, and single-amino acid variants, as well as structurel variants such as insertion and deletions and stores these data into appropriate tables. Anvi'o single profiles can be merged by the program anvi-merge..

See program help menu or go back to the main page of anvi’o programs and artifacts.
