NAME¶ariba - Antibiotic Resistance Identification By Assembly
SYNOPSIS¶ariba <subtool> [options]
DESCRIPTION¶ariba is the main executable for the ARIBA software, a tool that identifies antibiotic resistance genes by running local assemblies.
In general, the input is a FASTA file of reference sequences (can be a mix of genes and noncoding sequences) and paired sequencing reads. ARIBA reports which of the reference sequence were found, plus detailed information on the quality of the assemblies and any variants between the sequencing reads and the reference sequences.
The actual functionality is provided by the subtools listed below.
