PopPUNK (POPulation Partitioning Using Nucleotide Kmers)

Project description

# PopPUNK (POPulation Partitioning Using Nucleotide Kmers)

[![Build Status](](
[![Documentation Status](](
[![PyPI version](](
[![Anaconda package](](

Step 1) Use k-mers to calculate core and accessory distances

Step 2) Use core and accessory distance distribution to define strains

Step 3) Pick references from strains, which can be used to assign new
query sequences

See the [documentation]( and the

## Installation
The easiest way is through conda, which is most easily accessed by first
installing [miniconda]( PopPUNK can then
be installed by running:
conda install poppunk
If the package cannot be found you will need to add the necessary channels:
conda config --add channels defaults
conda config --add channels bioconda
conda config --add channels conda-forge

If you do not have conda you can also install through pip:
python3 -m pip install poppunk
You will need to be using Python 3.

Using both of these methods command `poppunk` will then be directly executable.
Alternatively clone this repository:
git clone
Then run with `python`.

### Dependencies

You will need a [mash]( installation
which is v2.0 or higher.

The following python packages are required, which can be installed
through `pip`. In brackets are the versions we used:

* python3
* `DendroPy` (4.3.0)
* `hdbscan` (0.8.13)
* `matplotlib` (2.1.2)
* `networkx` (2.1)
* `numba` (0.36.2)
* `numpy` (1.14.1)
* `pandas` (0.22.0)
* `scikit-learn` (0.19.1)
* `scipy` (1.0.0)
* `sharedmem` (0.3.5)

### Test installation
Run the following command:
cd test && python

If successful, you can clean the test data by running:
cd test && python

## Quick usage
Easy run mode, go from assemblies to clusters of strains:
poppunk --easy-run --r-files reference_list.txt --output poppunk_db

Or in two parts. First, create the database:
poppunk --create-db \
--r-files reference_list.txt \
--output poppunk_db \
--threads 2 \
--k-step 2 \
--min-k 9 \
--plot-fit 5

Then fit the model:
poppunk --fit-model \
--ref-db poppunk_db \
--distances poppunk_db/poppunk_db.dists \
--output poppunk_db \
--full-db \
--K 2

Once fitted, new query sequences can quickly be assigned:
poppunk --assign-query \
--ref-db poppunk_db \
--q-files query_list.txt \
--output query_results \

If running without having installed through conda or pip,
run `python` instead of `poppunk`.
