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 state from a pan-db or profile-db. This way, you can remove states that are clogging up the state list in the interface.

It is generally a good idea to export your state before deleting it, just in case ((anvi-export-state)s).

To list available states in a database, call

anvi-delete-state -p pan-db \ --list-states

Then, you can easily delete a state with the command

anvi-delete-hmms -p profile-db \ -s state
