ACT

Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT) is a Java application for displaying pairwise comparisons between two or more DNA sequences.

Information

Usage

See which versions of act are available:

$ module avail act

Load easer

$ module load act/13.0.0

Installation

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. /export/apps/act/13.0.0/act

#!/bin/env bash

readonly PREFIX=$(dirname $0)
java -jar $PREFIX/act.jar $*
