Canu is a fork of the Celera Assembler designed for high-noise single-molecule sequencing (such as the PacBio RSII or Oxford Nanopore MinION).



See which versions of canu are available:

$ module avail canu

Load one version into your environment and run it:

$ module load canu/1.8
$ canu

Note: canu will use all the CPUs available on the machine and you should limit it with maxThreads (see docs)


Notes from the sysadmin during installation:

$ cd /tmp
$ wget
$ tar xf canu-1.8.Linux-amd64.tar.xz
$ sudo mkdir -p /export/apps/canu/1.8
$ sudo cp -r canu-1.8/* /export/apps/canu/1.8
