Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT) is a Java application for displaying pairwise comparisons between two or more DNA sequences.
See which versions of act are available:
$ module avail act
$ module load act/13.0.0
Notes from the sysadmin during installation:
$ cd /tmp $ wget ftp://ftp.sanger.ac.uk/pub/resources/software/act/act.jar $ sudo mkdir -p /export/apps/act/13.0.0/ $ sudo cp act.jar /export/apps/act/13.0.0/
I created a simple wrapper shell script named
act to run act.jar. Otherwise, a user would have to specify the full path to act.jar which can be complex & unfriendly.
#!/bin/env bash readonly PREFIX=$(dirname $0) java -jar $PREFIX/act.jar $*
