BlobTools v1.0

A modular command-line solution for visualisation, quality control and taxonomic partitioning of genome datasets

Dependencies

  • UNIX system (bash, wget, tar, make, gunzip)
  • Python 2.7
  • pip

Installation

$ git clone https://github.com/DRL/blobtools.git
$ cd blobtools
$ ./install

The installation script will:

  • install Python dependencies through pip
  • download and install a copy of samtools-1.5 into the folder blobtools/samtools/
  • download a copy of NCBI TaxDump and create a nodesDB.txt file in blobtools/data/. BlobTools will use this file for linking TaxIDs to NCBI taxonomies
  • create a BlobTools executable (blobtools) in the main directory

Usage

$ ./blobtools -h
