  • Running stampy in bash script

    Hi folks,

    I try to run stampy from a bash script. My problem is more a Unix/bash issue, but some of you may have a working script already, so I hope you can help me.
    My script:
    ...
    q10="-q10"
    bwa_opt=$q10" "$bwa_ref

    command=$stampy' -g '$ref_genome' -h '$ref_genome' -o '$out' --bwa='$bwa' --bwaoptions="'$bwa_opt'" -M '$seq1' '$seq2

    echo $command
    $command


    Output:
    ./stampy-1.0.17/stampy.py -g hg19 -h hg19 -o out.sam --bwa=./bwa-0.5.7/bwa --bwaoptions="-q10 ~/reference_genome/hg19.fa" -M sequ1.fastq sequ2.fastq
    Nothing to do, with unused arguments on command line
    First unused argument: '~/reference_genome/hg19.fa"'


    The $command looks correct to me from the echo output, but it does not work in the script. When I copy the echo output and paste it to the command line, it does work. "Bash" makes a difference between echo $command and running $command. I could not figure out what is different. Maybe it is something about the quotes of --bwaoptions.

    Thanks,

    try this:

    Code:
    q10="-q10"
    bwa_opt="$q10 $bwa_ref"
    command="$stampy -g $ref_genome -h $ref_genome -o $out --bwa=$bwa --bwaoptions='$bwa_opt' -M $seq1 $seq2"

      Thank you for your quick reply!
      Unfortunately it does not solve my problem.

      Output with your code:
      Code:
      ./stampy-1.0.17/stampy.py -g hg19 -h hg19 -o out.sam --bwa=./bwa-0.5.7/bwa --bwaoptions='-q10 ~reference_genome/hg19.fa' -M seq1.fastq seq2.fastq
      Nothing to do, with unused arguments on command line
      First unused argument: '/home/ben4571/tmp/reference_genome/hg19.fa''
      0
      (The last quotes are two single ones, not one double quote.)

      I copied the command from the output and pasted it to the command line, as I did with my output before. Again, this way works very well. But it fails from within the script.

      Any suggestions?

      I use GNU bash, Version 4.2.10(1)-release (x86_64-suse-linux-gnu).

        Now I used the "-v 3" option in the stampy call and got the following line in the output:
        ...
        stampy: Starting Stampy with the following options:
        ...
        bwaoptions="-q10
        ...
        So apparently the stampy.py script has problems, parsing the arguments.
        I just dont understand why it works from the command line...

          Perhaps use a very simple Perl script instead ?

          I use generic scripts a lot to run aligners, taking arguments from the command line and running the aligner that way. It's very good for sharing to other users.

            That works, thank you!
            But I still would like to know, why the bash script is not working...

              I use GNU bash, Version 4.2.10(1)-release (x86_64-suse-linux-gnu).
              The issue is how white space is being parsed by bash. The script does it's own parsing, then parsing happens again when the command is executed. It sometimes takes some trial and error before I get it right.
              Here are some things I would try:

              Code:
              command="$stampy -g $ref_genome -h $ref_genome -o $out --bwa=$bwa --bwaoptions=\"$q10 $bwa_ref\" -M $seq1 $seq2"
              command="$stampy -g $ref_genome -h $ref_genome -o $out --bwa=$bwa --bwaoptions=$q10\ $bwa_ref -M $seq1 $seq2"
              command="$stampy -g $ref_genome -h $ref_genome -o $out --bwa=$bwa --bwaoptions=\"$q10\ $bwa_ref\" -M $seq1 $seq2"
              command="$stampy -g $ref_genome -h $ref_genome -o $out --bwa=$bwa --bwaoptions=$q10\\\ $bwa_ref -M $seq1 $seq2"

                Thank you all, for helping me!

                I finally got it working. Thanks to the hint that the whitespace might be the problem, I found this HOW-TO. The solution is the eval command.
                Code:
                ...
                command="$stampy -g $ref_genome -h $ref_genome -o $out --bwa=$bwa --bwaoptions=\"$q10 $bwa_ref\" -M $seq1 $seq2"
                eval $command

                  Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
                  by seqadmin


                  The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

                  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...
