Installing FragGeneScan on Ubuntu

FragGeneScan is a bioinformatics software to find fragmented genes in short reads [1]. It predicts genes by combining sequence models and codon usages in a hidden Markov model (HMM). It improves the prediction of the protein-coding region in short reads. In this article, we will install FragGeneScan on Ubuntu.

Getting started

Let’s update and upgrade the system first.

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get upgrade

Downloading

To download, FragGeneScan, open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and change to the directory where you want to download the software. Let’s say Downloads and type the following command on the terminal:

$ cd Downloads/

$ wget https://sourceforge.net/projects/fraggenescan/files/latest/download/FragGeneScan1.31.tar.gz

If you want to download it manually, then click here.

Installation

Now, type the following commands from the same directory:

$ tar xvzf FragGeneScan1.31.tar.gz

$ cd FragGeneScan1.31/

$ make

$ make clean

$ make fgs

Now, you can easily run FragGeneScan from the terminal.

How to run do_dssp command in Gromacs 2022?

In the latest version of GROMACS (2022) [1], there are some issues regarding the gmx do_dssp command. Apparently, this command either does not run displaying a fatal error, or if it runs then it does not read any frame from MD simulation files. In this article, we are going to run the same command for GROMACS 2022. (more…)
