  • App installation

    Hi all ~~

    I use Ubuntu as my operating system. I am new to it. I downloaded many Bioinformatics software; FastQC, Bowtie2,etc.

    I have read multiple manuals about installation. I did not download these applications from Software Center. As I went through manuals I found out for installation I have to write first: "./configure", then "make" and finally "make install".

    I follow these steps but I cannot install these applications. Would you please help me??

    Post your errors and people might be able to help, right now, that's just not possible.

      I get this error for fastqc:

      "This is the source distribution of FastQC. You need to get the compiled version if you want to run the program"

      I do not know what I should do.

        If you look on the FastQC download page you have the following options:

        FastQC A quality control application for high throughput sequence data

        README
        Installation and setup instructions
        Release Notes Please read these before using the program.
        FastQC v0.11.3 (Win/Linux zip file)
        FastQC v0.11.3 (Mac DMG image)
        Source Code for FastQC v0.11.3 (zip file)

        The one in bold is the one you want.

        It's a Java application. You need to have Java installed to run it. There is more information in the installation guide:

          Hi all,

          I am having a similar problem. I work with Mac and my terminal give me back this error message "This is the source distribution of FastQC. You need to get the compiled version if you want to run the program". I have downloaded so many times the file for installing FastQC in my computer but it doesn't work. I have also tried to installed from the terminal following the instructions that the web page has but not success. Help please!!!

            Are you downloading the macOS .dmg version here?

                What do you mean by that? You can't open a fastq file or the program itself?

                  I have tried to work with FastQC through the terminal and it says the error abovementioned.
                  And with I open the program apparently it works but I can't open any file.

                    I assume you have the Java Development Kit installed in addition to the JRE. If not, install JDK and then the DMG version of fastqc should work.

                      Yes. I have installed the latest version of Java as the instruction says. So I don't know why it doens't work

                        Not only Java but also Java development kit (JDK). From here.

                          Yes. I have it. I don't know what is happening. The program even doesn't appear in the application list.

                            When you download the DMG version and unarchive it, copy the fastqc icon that you see (it is the full app) to desktop/applications folder. You should be able to run it then. What version of macOS are you using (I tested this on high sierra)?

                              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...
