A directory of data downloaded from the KEGG database resource for use in function annotation and metabolism estimation.

It is created by running the program anvi-setup-kegg-kofams. Not everything from KEGG is included in this directory, only the information relevant to downstream programs. The most critical components of this directory are KOfam HMM profiles and the modules-db which contains information on metabolic pathways as described in the KEGG MODULES resource.

Programs that rely on this data directory include anvi-run-kegg-kofams and anvi-estimate-metabolism.
