MEME suite is used to discover novel motifs in unaligned nucleotide and protein sequences [1,2]. In this article, we will learn how to install MEME on Ubuntu.
Let’s update and upgrade the system first.
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
Change to a directory where you want to download the software. Let’s say Downloads. Open a terminal and type the following commands:
$ cd Downloads/
$ wget http://meme-suite.org/meme-software/5.1.1/meme-5.1.1.tar.gz
Now extract the package, you will see a new directory called ‘meme-5.1.1‘ in Downloads. Change to this directory and then install by typing the following commands:
$ tar xvzf meme-5.1.1.tar.gz
$ cd meme-5.1.1/
$ make test
$ sudo make install
If you don’t see any error, then you have successfully installed the MEME suite on your Ubuntu.
