Installing RDPTools on Ubuntu

RDP provides analysis tools called RDPTools. These tools are used to high-throughput sequencing data including single-strand, and paired-end reads [1]. In this article, we are going to install RDPTools on Ubuntu (Linux).

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 prerequisites

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

Downloading RDPTools

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

Installing RDPTools

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.
