Canu is a fork of the Celera Assembler designed for high-noise single-molecule sequencing (such as the PacBio RSII or Oxford Nanopore MinION).
- Version: 1.8
- Added: September, 2017
- Updated: October, 2018
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: By default canu will try to use all the CPUs available on the machine so you should limit it with the
maxThreads option. See the documentation.
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
