anvi-script-process-genbank [program]

This script takes a GenBank file, and outputs a FASTA file, as well as two additional TAB-delimited output files for external gene calls and gene functions that can be used with the programs anvi-gen-contigs-database and anvi-import-functions.

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

contigs-fasta external-gene-calls functions-txt

Requires or uses



This program extracts the data from a genbank-file and converts it into anvi’o friendly artifacts: namely, a contigs-fasta, external-gene-calls and a functions-txt.

The contigs-fasta and external-gene-calls can be given to anvi-gen-contigs-database to create a contigs-db, and then you can use anvi-import-functions to bring the function data (in the functions-txt) into the database. Then you’ll have all of the data in your genbank-file converted into a single contigs-db, which you can use for a variety of anvi’o analyses.

The parameters of this program entirely deal with the outputs. Besies telling the program where to put them, you can also give the function annotation source (in the functions-txt) a custom name.
