  • HPC_DORADO_DIR - installation directory
  • HPC_DORADO_BIN - executable directory

Additional Information

In order to run the software, you may need to load the modules "cuda" and "pytorch". You may need to also "pip install pre-commit", as per the author's recommendation.

Note that for fast5 to pod5 conversions with Dorado if you have too many reads the program may exit before completing the conversions without an error. If you are not counting the reads you may miss this and lose data. Since the program doesn't exit with an error SLURM doesn't fail the job, so the failure is silent. Make sure to request sufficient memory for the conversion.
