This tool will compute a DIAMOND index from a protein database. Indexes are then used as input to the Annotate CDS with Best DIAMOND Hit tool. To run the tool, go to:

        Databases (Image databases_folder_closed_16_n_p) | Functional Analysis | Create DIAMOND Index

In the first dialog, select a protein database downloaded with the Download Protein Database tool (figure 19.1).
