PANDAseq is a bioinformatics tool that aligns paired-ends of Illumina sequences . In this article, we are going to install PANDAseq on Ubuntu.
Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T. Update and upgrade your system using the following commands:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
You need to install some packages before installing PANDAseq. Paste the following command in the terminal:
$ sudo apt-get install -y build-essential libtool automake zlib1g-dev libbz2-dev pkg-config
Change to the directory where you want to download the software. Let’s say, Downloads. Download the PANDAseq from here or use the following command:
$ cd Downloads/
$ wget https://github.com/neufeld/pandaseq/archive/master.zip
Unzip the downloaded file using the following command:
$ unzip master.zip
Change to the source directory of PANDAseq,
$ cd pandaseq-master/
Now, install PANDAseq using the following command.
$ ./autogen.sh && ./configure && make && sudo make install
It will take a few minutes to finish. After that, you will be able to run PANDAseq on your system successfully!

How to extract methylation call using Bismark?
Bismark is bioinformatics to map bisulfite treated sequencing reads and to perform methylation calls . In this article, we are going to extract methylation information from Bismark alignment outputs. (more…)

FiNGS- A New Software providing Filters for Next Generation Sequencing
We use somatic variant callers to detect mutations in cancer samples by comparing sequencing data tumor and normal sample pairs. This is followed by some ad-hoc filtering that may produce low precision data resulting in a large number of false positives. (more…)
