A fixation index matrix is what it sounds like (a matrix of fixation indices) and is generated by anvi-gen-fixation-index-matrix.
This is a distance matrix where each column represnts a metagenome/sample and each row represents a metagenome/sample, so each cell represents the fixation index between two samples. The fixation index is a number from 0 (maximum similiarity) to 1 (maximum distance).
This is a form of view-data, so it can be provided to anvi-matrix-to-newick as is done in the Infant Gut tutorial.
For example, here is the fixation index matrix based off of a few random genes (1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 21, 32, 35, 56, 567) in the infant gut tutorial:
