Can consume

contigs-db hmm-source hmm-hits

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, as implied by the name, is used to delete a hmm-hits from a contigs-db. This way, you can repopulate the function annotations with a different source or program or just delete data that’s clogging up the interface.

It is generally a good idea to export your information before deleting it, just in case. The HMM hits will show up in most displays, so if you’ve already run anvi-summarize, you should be good.

To list available hmm-sources in a database, call

anvi-delete-hmms -c contigs-db \ --list-hmm-sources

Then, you can easily delete hmm-hits from a specific source with the command

anvi-delete-hmms -c contigs-db \ --hmm-source hmm-source
