This program exports the taxonomy hits for the splits contained in a contigs-db, outputting them in a splits-taxonomy-txt.

To do this, anvi’o examines all of the annotated genes within your splits and returns the taxon ID with the most genes associated with it. For example, a split with 3 genes identified as E. coli, 2 genes identified as Staphylococcus aureus, and 1 as Streptococcus pneumoniae would be annotated as E. coli.

To run this program, just provide a contigs-db:

anvi-export-splits-taxonomy -c contigs-db \ -o PATH/TO/splits-taxonomy-txt
