contigs-db gene-taxonomy-txt


This program uses a gene-taxonomy-txt to populate the taxonomic information for the genes in a contigs-db.

Once finished, your gene taxonomy will appear as an additional layer if you open the contigs-db and an associated profile-db in anvi-interactive.

There is an entire blogpost about different ways to do this here. It outlines how to get your sequences using anvi-get-sequences-for-gene-calls than use either Kaiju or Centrifuge to get the taxonomy information for your genes. Finally, you bring that information back into anvi’o using this program.
