### External annotation with Diamond and MEGAN6
To finalize our analysis process, the annotation is performed externally. This allows for switching to a more powerfull machine as Diamond needs a lot of computational power to generate an NCBI-database based mapping file per sample.
In case no suitable computational facilities are availble, consider using computationally less demanding tools such as [Prokka]( for annotation.
The first step for annotation is to generate an `nr.dmnd` file based on `nr.gz`, downloaded from NCBI, with Diamond. This step must be performed only at the first time:
