kandi X-RAY | bedtools2 Summary

bedtools2 is a C library typically used in Artificial Intelligence, Genomics applications. bedtools2 has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities, it has a Permissive License and it has medium support. You can download it from GitHub.

Collectively, the bedtools utilities are a swiss-army knife of tools for a wide-range of genomics analysis tasks. The most widely-used tools enable genome arithmetic: that is, set theory on the genome. For example, bedtools allows one to intersect, merge, count, complement, and shuffle genomic intervals from multiple files in widely-used genomic file formats such as BAM, BED, GFF/GTF, VCF. While each individual tool is designed to do a relatively simple task (e.g., intersect two interval files), quite sophisticated analyses can be conducted by combining multiple bedtools operations on the UNIX command line.

            Problems with bedtools installation
            Asked 2022-Mar-05 at 17:07

            I am a very new beginner in bash programming and never succeed in installing tools on my computer.

            I am trying to install bedtools without any success

            I typed these following commands on my terminal

            It looks like you accidentally downloaded and compiled the program under your my_bin directory. That creates some potential for confusion, so I would recommend running the wget and make commands from a temporary directory, such as /tmp or a tmp directory under your home directory. As a result, the compiled binaries are now under /Users/avitrac/my_bin/bedtools2/bin. I would recommend moving that directory outside of your my_bin directory, perhaps to a ~/tmp directory; you could then skip directly to step 5 below.

            (You could leave it there and simply cp /Users/avitrac/my_bin/bedtools2/bin/bedtools ~/my_bin, but that would leave the source code and compilation artifacts under your bin directory for no good reason).

            1. mkdir ~/tmp ## if needed
            2. cd ~/tmp
            3. wget
            4. make
            5. cp bin/bedtools ~/my_bin/

            The bedtools-2.29.1.tar.gz file and bedtools2 directory can both be removed now. The "Compiling from source via Github" instructions gloss over this (fairly typical) use-case and omitted the explicit instructions to build the program in a temporary location.



            Combine shell command lines in snakemake
            Asked 2020-Feb-19 at 15:21

            I would like to combine two command lines as one single to avoid the intermediate files.

            You probably get an invalid syntax because of the " you use in your shell here: Description="Gene name">. This closes your shell. You can either escape these quotes or use the """ syntax:
