The Complete Genomics Analysis Tools (cgatools) is an open source project to provide tools for downstream analysis of Complete Genomics data. The focus is to provide command line utilities, but a C++ API is available as well. The general areas of functionality include genome comparison, format conversion, and reference tools.
Running the application using modules
To use cgatools with the environment modules system at HPC the following commands are available:
Get module information for cgatools:
$module spider cgatools
Load the default application module:
$module load cgatools
The modulefile for this software adds the directory with executable files to the shell execution PATH and sets the following environment variables:
- HPC_CGATOOLS_DIR - directory where cgatools is located.
- HPC_CGATOOLS_BIN - executable directory
- HPC_CGATOOLS_INC - includes directory
- HPC_CGATOOLS_DOC - documentation directory
If you publish research that uses cgatools you have to cite it as follows: R. Drmanac, et. al. Science 327(5961), 78. [DOI: 10.1126/science.1181498]
