A TXT-type anvi’o artifact. This artifact is typically generated, used, and/or exported by anvi’o (and not provided by the user)..

Required or used by

There are no anvi’o tools that use or require this artifact directly, which means it is most likely an end-product for the user.


This is a text file containing the average coverage for each contig in each sample that was in the profile-db and contigs-db that you used when you ran anvi-export-splits-and-coverages or anvi-export-gene-coverage-and-detection.

This is a tab-delimited file where each row describes a specific split/gene and each column describes one of your samples. Each cell contains the average coverage of that contig in that sample.

This artifact is really only used when taking information out of anvi’o, so enjoy your coverage information :)

Example for splits

(the type of output you would get from anvi-export-splits-and-coverages)
