Can provide

This program does not seem to provide any artifacts. Such programs usually print out some information for you to see or alter some anvi’o artifacts without producing any immediate outputs.


This program tells you about the collections within a profile-db or pan-db.

Just run it like so

anvi-show-collections-and-bins -p profile-db

and Anvi’o will output to your console the following information for each of the collections in the database:

  • The name and ID of the collection
  • The number of bins within the collection, and each of their names
  • The number of splits contained within those bins
