split gff3 file into several files. By default we create files containing 1000 genes and all sub-features associated. GFF3 input file must be sequential.

SYNOPSIS --input <input file> -o <output file> --help


  • --gff, --file or --input

    STRING: Input GTF/GFF file.

  • -i or --interval Integer. Number of group of feature to include in each file. 1000 by default.

  • --ft or --feature_type The top feature of the feature group. By default "gene".

  • -o or --output

    STRING: Output file. If no output file is specified, the output will be written to STDOUT. The result is in tabulate format.

  • -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
