What is the best tool to recover nitrogen cycling genes from an annotated assembly?

What is the best tool to recover nitrogen cycling genes from an annotated assembly? 0 I have annotated metagenomic assemblies and am wanting to recover genes involved in the nitrogen cycle. I have identified three tools to help me do this but I unsure how to go about selecting them…
