How to load mothur and run make.contigs on cluster with sbatch script


Hi Team,

I have huge dataset for demultiplexing and I would like to know the procedure for how to install mothur on the cluster and run make.contigs using sbatch script.

Thanking you for the help,


You probably want to talk with your sysadmin on how best to install the software. You can get a precompiled linux or source code version of mothur from our GitHub repository. I’d encourage you to follow the MiSeq SOP and check out the batch file that accompanies the data files that are used with that tutorial.



Thank you, Pat. I have followed the MiSeq SOP section and it worked.
