QSRA

Overview

QSRA[1] stands for Quality Value Guided Short Read Assembler.

QSRA, as the name implies, is a quality value guided de novo short read DNA assembler. It builds upon the VCAKE algorithm and assembles faster than VCAKE.[1]

Installing

Get the source files and compile QSRA:

cd /campusdata/BME235/programs
wget http://qsra.cgrb.oregonstate.edu/files/QSRA.tar.gz
tar xfz QSRA.tar.gz
mv QSRA.tar.gz QSRA/
cd QSRA
make

Copy the compiled binary to the /campusdata/BME235/bin directory:

cp qsra /campusdata/BME235/bin/
