  • Trinity will not install properly on Mac OS X

    I tried to compile trinity r2013_08_14 on Mac OS X 7.5 and I got the report below:
    Performing Unit Tests of Build

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    JellyFish: has been Installed Properly
    Inchworm: has been Installed Properly
    Chrysalis Installation appears to have FAILED
    QuantifyGraph Installation appears to have FAILED
    GraphFromFasta Installation appears to have FAILED
    ReadsToTranscripts Installation appears to have FAILED
    fastool: has been Installed Properly
    parafly: has been Installed Properly
    slclust: has been Installed Properly
    collectl: has been Installed Properly

    I have Xcode Version 4.6 (4H127)
    Do I need to update my Xcode or does the Makefile not properly install?

    Are there dependencies for ReadsToTranscripts, GraphFromFasta, QuantifyGraph and Chrysalis Installation? That would suggest why some installed and those failed....

      I don't think you'll ever get Trinity to work on OSX, at least not without some major changes.

      I think you also need to set ulimit to be infinate, which to do on OSX requires recompiling the kernal to allow it, if I remember right....

        We run Trinity on our MacPro without problems, although I'll admit that it hasn't been updated for a while so it's not the current version (we're still using version 2012-06-08 since we don't run trinity that often on our Mac).

        It is true that the stack limits can kill a Trinity run on OSX, but it won't prevent you from installing anything (or at least it didn't use to). When you do get it installed, you'll just need to run the following before running Trinity in order to increase the stack limit to the OSX limit, which in all of our uses has never caused any problems.

        Code:
        ulimit -s 65532
        I actually modified the main Trinity.pl script to check if that limit was increased and die if it hasn't been to prevent it from being an issue. Unfortunately because of how the restrictions for OSX work, a process cannot increase the user limits to be greater than the parent process, so everything inherits the maximum limit of the kernel which is 65532.

          Yeah, I remember getting Trinity to install but always having it error out with the stack limits. I had linux computers available to me though, so I never really bothered to fix that stack limit check. Anyway, nice work around, someone else might have to try to see if it will take on the new version.

            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 on Modified Bases...

            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...
