Hi, I’m looking at some previously published data which reports genes identified from PanPhlAn with what they call a PanPhlAn identifier in the form “xg000002”. However, I cannot seem to find anywhere in the documentation that refers to identifiers in this form. When looking at the precomputed pangenomes I don’t find values like this either. So I have two questions:
- Does PanPhlAn actually use this ID structure anywhere?
- If so, can these IDs be used to unambiguously referr to a sequence, or is it impossible to recover the original sequence/annotation associated with this feature?
I fear this may be something unique to the study in question, but would be very happy to be proven wrong.
Thanks in advance.
