  • problems with BBmap/java

    hi,
    I am trying to use BBmap to dedupe illumina paired end reads. (tried fastuniq but can't get past the "error in open left file first_read_name" error)
    command line I used:
    dedupe.sh in1= reads1.fq in2= reads2.fq out= outreads.fq

    output starts with
    java -Djava.library.path=..../bbmap/jni/
    -ea -Xmx77448m -Xms77448m
    -cp ...../bbmap/current/
    jgi.Dedupe in1= reads1.fq in2= reads.fq
    executing jgi.Dedupe.jgi[list of input vars]

    Dedupe version 36.92
    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerEception
    at jgi.Dedupe.<init>(Dedupe.java:211)
    at jgi.Dedupe.main(Dedupe.java:86)

    it seems that input is assigned to vars as it should, and something is not in the location it is supposed to be found in?
    my java version is up to date, but I should say that I still do not have a good grasp on PATH

    Remove the spaces after the equals (=) signs and try again.

      Jeez, would have never suspected that! Don't know if it will run through to the end ok, but it is running! thanks you very much!

        BBmap not finishing

        Removing the white space after the equal sign has started BBmap running, but it has been running now (or seems to be at least, there is activity in system monitor) for about 20 hours.
        I had one message right at the start : Set AbsorbContainment to false because it is not currently supported for paired reads.

        Is this normal? both the message and the runtime?

          From the manual: "Pair Limitations: Dedupe supports paired reads, but it was not really designed for them. When processing paired reads, some parts of Dedupe are restricted to a single thread due to a complication that causes non-deterministic output. As such, processing paired reads is slower than unpaired reads. Also, pair support is limited to exact matches and overlaps, not containments."

          'AbsorbContainments' is enabled by default. You have to disable ('=false') in the command line (which is exactly what the warning instructed you to do).

            Thanks again. I had not found the manual yet.

              The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
              by seqadmin



              Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

              Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
              by seqadmin


              New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

              A major leap in the field has
