Can consume

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 dbCAN2 CAZyme HMMs for use in function annotation. This program generates a cazyme-data artifact, which is required to run the program anvi-run-cazymes.

Set up cazymes data

anvi’o will download the newest version of the database (V11) by default:


You can use --cazyme-version, if you want anvi’o to download a different version of the dbCAN2 CAZyme HMMs database:

The following versions have been tested for download: V9, V10, V11

anvi-setup-cazymes --cazyme-version V10

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

anvi-setup-cazymes --cazyme-data-dir path/to/location

If you already have a cazyme-data artifact and are trying to re-download this data, run:

anvi-setup-cazymes --reset
