Attention

SERVICE RISK: The Bessemer HPC cluster will be at risk from 9am on July 15th until 5pm on July 19th 2024

Attention

The ShARC HPC cluster was decommissioned on the 30th of November 2023 at 17:00. It is no longer possible for users to access that cluster.

Bedtools

Collectively, the bedtools utilities are a swiss-army knife of tools for a wide-range of genomics analysis tasks.

Interactive usage

After connecting to ShARC (see Establishing a SSH connection), start an interactive session with the qrshx command.

The latest version of bedtools (currently version 2.30.0) is made available with the command:

module load apps/bedtools/2.30.0/gcc-8.2-cmake-3.17.1

After this any of the bedtools commands can be run from the prompt.

Installation notes

Bedtools was installed using GCC 8.2 with the script /usr/local/packages/apps/bedtools/2.30.0/gcc-8.2-cmake-3.17.1/install_bedtools.sh

Testing

Description
===========
BEDTools: a powerful toolset for genome arithmetic.
The BEDTools utilities allow one to address common genomics tasks such as finding feature overlaps and
computing coverage.
The utilities are largely based on four widely-used file formats: BED, GFF/GTF, VCF, and SAM/BAM.
