Size annotations

See also
  fastx_strip_annots command

Size annotations are used to indicate cluster sizes of representative sequences.

A size annotation is specified as a size=N field in the sequence label. It may appear anywhere in the label. It must be delimited by semi-colons, which may optionally be omitted at the end of a label, though this is not recommended.

You can propagate size annotations through multiple commands by using the -sizein and -sizeout options, which are supported by most (but not all) clustering commands.
