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 https://github.com/marbl/canu/releases/download/v1.8/canu-1.8.Linux-amd64.tar.xz $ 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
