Check a GTF/GFF annotation file to find cases where different gene features have CDS that overlap. In this case the gene features will be merged in only one. One gene is chosen as reference, and the mRNA from the other gene will be linked to it. So, it creates isoforms.

SYNOPSIS -f infile  [-o outfile] --help


  • -f, --file, --gff3 or --gff

    Input GTF/GFF file.

  • -m or --merge

    Bolean: Merge/add the attributes of gene feature that are merged (except ID and Parent).

  • -o, --out, --output or --outfile

    Output file. If none given, will be display in standard output.

  • -v or --verbose

    BOLEAN: Add verbosity.

  • -c or --config

    String - Input agat config file. By default AGAT takes as input agat_config.yaml file from the working directory if any, otherwise it takes the orignal agat_config.yaml shipped with AGAT. To get the agat_config.yaml locally type: "agat config --expose". The --config option gives you the possibility to use your own AGAT config file (located elsewhere or named differently).

  • --help or -h
