This program seems to know what its doing. It needs no input material from its user. Good program.

Can provide



This program downloads and organizes a local copy of the data from EBI’s Pfam database for use in function annotation. This program generates a pfams-data artifact, which is required to run the program anvi-run-pfams.

Set up Pfams data


By default, this data is stored at anvio/data/misc/Pfam. To set up this data in a non-default location, run

anvi-setup-pfams --pfam-data-dir path/to/location

If you already have a pfams-data artifact and are trying to redownload this data, run

anvi-setup-pfams --reset
