MetaCarvel - Scaffolder for metagenomes
You can install Networkx as described here. MetCarvel can work with the latest NetworkX version 2.5 Briefly, you need to run following:
pip install numpy (tested with version 1.20) pip install networkx>=2.5
Wiki.The detailed documentation and tutorial to install and run MetaCarvel can be found on
To run MetaCarvel, run the following;
python run.py -h usage: run.py [-h] -a ASSEMBLY -m MAPPING -d DIR [-r REPEATS] [-k KEEP] [-l LENGTH] [-b BSIZE] [-v VISUALIZATION] MetaCarvel: A scaffolding tool for metagenomic assemblies optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -a ASSEMBLY, --assembly ASSEMBLY assembled contigs -m MAPPING, --mapping MAPPING mapping of read to contigs in bam format -d DIR, --dir DIR output directory for results -r REPEATS, --repeats REPEATS To turn repeat detection on -k KEEP, --keep KEEP Set this to keep temporary files in output directory -l LENGTH, --length LENGTH Minimum length of contigs to consider for scaffolding in base pairs (bp) -b BSIZE, --bsize BSIZE Minimum mate pair support between contigs to consider for scaffolding -v VISUALIZATION, --visualization VISUALIZATION To generate .db file for AsmViz visualization program
This will generate a bunch of files in the output directory. If you are interested in output of each step of the scaffolding process, these files can be useful. The final output files are scaffolds.fasta - which contains sequences of scaffolds and scaffolds.agp is an agp style information for assignment of contigs to scaffolds.
