You must install Sequana first:

pip install sequana

Then, just install this package:

pip install sequana_revcomp


sequana_pipelines_revcomp --input-directory DATAPATH

This creates a directory with the pipeline and configuration file. You will then need to execute the pipeline:

cd revcomp
sh  # for a local run
make clean

This launch a snakemake pipeline. If you are familiar with snakemake, you can retrieve the pipeline itself and its configuration files and then execute the pipeline yourself with specific parameters:

snakemake -s revcomp.rules -c config.yaml --cores 4 --stats stats.txt

Or use sequanix interface.


This pipelines requires the following executable(s):

  • seqtk


This pipeline runs seqtk in parallel on the input fastq files.
