This file contains the frequency of each amino acid for some reference context in your contigs-db.

This is a tab-delimited table where each column represents an amino acid and each row represents a specific reference context (most often this will be a gene after running anvi-get-codon-frequencies). The numbers will either refer to counts of each amino acid or precent normalizations depending on the parameters with which you ran anvi-get-codon-frequencies.

You can also use anvi-get-aa-counts to get this information for a bin, collection, or splits-txt.
