PANDAseq is a bioinformatics tool that aligns paired-ends of Illumina sequences [1]. In this article, we are going to install PANDAseq on Ubuntu.

Preparing system

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

Installing Pre-requisites

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

Unzip the downloaded file using the following command:

$ unzip

Change to the source directory of PANDAseq,

$ cd pandaseq-master/
