Hello everyone!

I would like to ask for help/advice regarding my methods. I have a metagenome data that I have assembled using metaspades, binned using metabat2, and annotated using Prokka. I only extracted specific genera of bacteria from the metadata. I wanted to analyze the biosynthetic gene clusters of these MAGs. I used anti-smash and Bagel4 for this but my question is.. How can I tell if a BGC have antiviral potential without the need of in vitro analysis?

The results I got from anti-smash looks like this (attached photo). Thank you very much! I hope you can help me.

You can tell only if the product of reference cluster: Most similar known cluster has known antiviral activity

Thank you for your reply, sir.

How about the BGCs without hits to Most similar known cluster?

The only thing you can do is a literature search using the Type name: i.e. "lasso peptide" AND "antiviral".
