minpath website  

MinPath (Minimal set of Pathways) is a parsimony approach for biological pathway reconstructions using protein family predictions, achieving a more conservative, yet more faithful, estimation of the biological pathways for a query dataset.

Environment Modules

Run module spider minpath to find out what environment modules are available for this application.

System Variables

  • HPC_MINPATH_DIR - installation directory
  • HPC_MINPATH_BIN - executable directory
