  • Running kmergenie

    Hello every one.
    I'm new on bioinformatics. So, sorry if my question is too basic.
    I'm trying to run kmergenie. It hasn't worked when I use reads_file.txt with the files I want to calculate the best k-mer. That's what I'm trying:
    $ nano reads_file.txt
    -> Paste:


    $ kmergenie -l 21 -k 51 -s 5 reads_file.txt -o 47G_kmergenie

    The message is:
    running histogram estimation
    File reads_file.txt starts with character ".", hence is interpreted as a list of file names
    Reading 2 read files

    End then it stops.
    The only way kmergenie has worked is running one file at the time, but as I have paired end reads it's gonna take too long to finish the work.
    Please can anybody help me?

    I think the file with the path for your FASTQs go after `kmergenie `

    Here is the program syntax: kmergenie <read_file> [options]

    I wrote this tutorial on how to use it - https://onestopdataanalysis.com/esti...-for-assembly/
