Requires or uses


This program provides information about each of the single copy core genes in your contigs-db.

Simply provide a contigs-db, and it will create a genes-stats file containing a variety of information about the single copy core genes in your database.

anvi-script-gen_stats_for_single_copy_core_genes.py -c contigs-db

The console output will tell you the total number of contigs, splits, and nucleotides in your contigs-db, while the text output will tell you the source, name, and e-value of each single-copy core gene.

You can get information from only single-copy core genes from a specific source. To see what sources are availible in your contigs-db, run

anvi-script-gen_stats_for_single_copy_core_genes.py -c contigs-db \ --list-sources
