Software for detecting contiguous regions of base analogues incorporated in Oxford Nanopore reads. Development was done using gcc 5.4.0 on an Ubuntu 16.04 platform.
Downloading and Compiling DNAscent
The recommended OS for DNAscent is Ubuntu 16.04. Clone the DNAscent repository with the recursive flag so that the dependencies are cloned as well.
git clone --recursive https://github.com/MBoemo/DNAscent.git
The DNAscent directory will appear in your current directory. Switch to the latest tagged version and compile the software by running:
cd DNAscent git checkout 2.0.2 make
This will put the DNAscent executable into the DNAscent/bin directory. A typical compile time for DNAscent and its dependencies is 5 minutes.
Please see the documentation for detailed usage instructions, descriptions of DNAscent's subprograms, and an example workflow.
