Modifying the Chocophlan database

Hi, First and foremost I’d like to say I love the metaphlan tool and am so grateful to the Huttenhower team for making the tool, it is so amazing and useful for the work I am doing. I’m not the most experienced but I’m slowly picking up the knowledge and understanding of the biobakery suite of tools.

One thing that I’m currently trying to do is to expand the CHOCOPhlAn database to include some other species of bacteria (specifically pathogens) that are currently not included in the database.

Are there any tools or documentation to understand from where or how to pull specific marker sequences like the ones used in the CHOCOPhlAn_markers.fasta?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time and best regards,
