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 collection from a profile-db.

When you do this, you’ll lose the collection forever, as well as the bins within it. It is generally a good idea to export your binning effort into a collection-txt using anvi-export-collection before deleting it, just to be safe.

To list available collections in a database, call

anvi-delete-collection -p profile-db \ --list-collections

Then, you can easily delete a collection with the command

anvi-delete-collection -p profile-db \ -C collection
