Bioinformatics, Assembly pipeline


Canu is a fork of the Celera Assembler, designed for high-noise single-molecule sequencing (such as the PacBio RS II or Oxford Nanopore MinION). Canu is a hierarchical assembly pipeline which runs in four steps:

Detect overlaps in high-noise sequences using MHAP

Generate corrected sequence consensus

Trim corrected sequences

Assemble trimmed corrected sequences

Available versions (Euler, old software stack)

How to submit a job

You can submit a canu job in batch mode with the following command:
bsub [LSF options] "canu [canu options]"
Here you need to replace [canu options] with canu command line options and [LSF options] with LSF parameters for the resource requirements of the job. Please find a documentation about the parameters of bsub on the wiki page about the batch system.
