  • Newbler cannot use a "project lock file"?

    Hi,

    I have been using Newbler (runAssembly) with no problems on one server and all the files and the binary are in fact stored on an NFS.

    I am now trying to run it on a second server, also attached to the same NFS (so all the files/binary are the same), however I get this error:

    $ runAssembly -o Newbler data11.sff
    Error: Unable to create project directory: Newbler
    Could not use a project lock file.
    Error in runAssembly: Error while creating the assembly project.
    Usage: runAssembly [-o projdir] [-nrm] [-p (sfffile | [regionlist:]analysisDir)]... (sfffile | [regionlist:]analysisDir)...

    I presume it is having some permissions issue, but my username does have write permission, and before the error arrives it does in fact create the 'Newbler' directory. Does it try to write this "project lock file" somewhere else? Does anybody know where this lock file lives? or know what causes this error specifically?

    thanks

    adam

    Can you double check the NFS file system is mounted the same way on both machines?

      Yes, they are both mounted:

      homes1:/homedirs8 on /homedirs8 type nfs (rw,soft,intr,bg,addr=IP)

        The only time I've personally seen this was with a mounted drive, and I resorted to running it in a different directory.

        Perhaps this is down to the version of the library used to mount the drive... curious. Are the two servers running similar operating systems? e.g. Both the same Linux distribution?

          one is CentOS 5.5 and the other CentOS 5.6, so pretty similar. I will talk to our sysadmin tomorrow to see if he might know of any differences between the mountings

          thanks

            Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
            by seqadmin




            The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...

            Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
            by seqadmin


            Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...
