RDP provides analysis tools called RDPTools. These tools are used to high-throughput sequencing data including single-strand, and paired-end reads . In this article, we are going to install RDPTools on Ubuntu (Linux).
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 openjdk-8 in order to install RDPTools. You can use the following command:
$ sudo apt-get install -y openjdk-8-jdk
Change to the directory where you want to download the software. Let’s say, Downloads. You can download RDP Tools either from here or use the following command:
$ wget https://github.com/rdpstaff/RDPTools/archive/refs/heads/master.zip
We are in the same directory (i.e., Downloads). Now extract the downloaded package using the following commands.
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update
$ sudo make
After a few minutes, it should be successfully installed on your system.
