This file describes the contents of a collection in a readable format. This is used for taking collections in and out of Anvi’o, or transferring them between Anvi’o projects.

This is a tab-delimited file that contains two columns. The first lists all of the contigs contained within the bins in this collection. The second lists the associated bin that that contig is placed in. For examples, check out this page or below.

contig_1 bin_1 contig_2 bin_1 contig_3 bin_1 contig_4 bin_2 contig_5 bin_3 contig_6 bin_3

You can also list splits instead of contigs in the left column, as seen here.
