This is taxonomy information about the layers stored in a single-profile-db. When you open this single-profile-db with anvi-interactive, this information will appear the same way that misc-data-layers does: in graphs at the right side of the interface, similarly to how the layer names are displayed.

You can bring this information into your profile database using anvi-import-taxonomy-for-layers by providing a layer-taxonomy-txt.
