This artifact represents the GTDB data (from Parks et al. 2018) downloaded by anvi-setup-trna-taxonomy. This information is required to run anvi-run-trna-taxonomy and anvi-estimate-trna-taxonomy.

If the results from this tRNA taxonomy search end up in a paper, make sure to cite Parks et al. 2018 for their information.

By default, it is stored at anvio/data/misc/TRNA-TAXONOMY. This directory contains a few files for each anticodon, each forming a fancy search database so that you can associate tRNA reads in your contigs-db with taxonomy information.

Edit this file to update this information.
