- During the taxonomic annotation process, BlobTools uses a nodesDB file to infer the taxonomy at each rank for each of the hits in a hits file based on the taxID of the hit
- A nodesDB file is a "condensed" version of NCBI's
names.dmpfiles and faster to parse.
- When the BlobTools is installed using the
installscript, it will automatically construct a nodesDB file.
- A header indicating the number of nodes, followed by TAB-separated lines containing
