  • Description

    WASP is a suite of tools for unbiased allele-specific read mapping and discovery of molecular QTLs.

  • Usage

    To list all executables provided by WASPQTL, run: $ biogrids-list waspqtl Copy to clipboard
  • Usage Notes

    WASPQTL is a set of scripts implementing workflows. The scripts require a variety of other tools.

    Most scripts will have to be edited to include specific project and data directories.

    In order to edit the files you must copy them out of the BioGrids /programs tree:


    to some local space.

    In the BioGrids environment, be sure to explicitly set the version of python to 3.6.5:

    export PYTHON_X=3.6.5

    and R to version 3.6.2:

    export R_X=3.6.2

    other tools like samtools and bowtie2 made also need specific versions.

  • Installation

    Use the following command to install this title with the CLI client: $ biogrids-cli install waspqtl Copy to clipboard Available operating systems: Linux 64
