  • where to copy samtools binary to some directories

    I am installing cufflinks on my Mac OS X, and here is the instruction:



    Under Installing the SAM tools I follow the instructions below

    1. Download the SAM tools
    2. Unpack the SAM tools tarball and cd to the SAM tools source directory.
    3. Build the SAM tools by typing make at the command line.
    4. Choose a directory into which you wish to copy the SAM tools binary, the included library libbam.a, and the library headers. A common choice is /usr/local/.
    5. Copy libbam.a to the lib/ directory in the folder you've chosen above (e.g. /usr/local/lib/)
    6. Create a directory called "bam" in the include/ directory (e.g. /usr/local/include/bam)
    7. Copy the headers (files ending in .h) to the include/bam directory you've created above (e.g. /usr/local/include/bam)
    8. Copy the samtools binary to some directory in your PATH.

    I've done the fist 7 steps, but I am not sure how to proceed with the last step (#8): should I use the command:

    sudo cp -a samtools-0.1.18 /usr/local/

    or into some other directories? What does the PATH in step 8 indicate? Thanks!

    PATH is a variable containing information on the directories that contain executable programs. If you type echo $PATH into your shell, it will spit the list out. Copy the file into one of those directories. You can also add new folders to your PATH, if you for some reason or another want the binary files in a specific location. You can google your way to how that is done, if youre interested.

      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
      by seqadmin




      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
      by seqadmin


      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
