pathogenie is a desktop and command line program for annotating draft bacterial
and viral genomes. It may also be used for quickly detecting arbitrary sequences such
as antibiotic resistance genes (AMR) proteins in nucleotide sequences. It uses Blast
to find hits to known gene sequences from sequence databases. The inputs are fasta files.
Annotation is performed in a similar manner to Prokka and first requires an assembled
genome if you have sequenced reads.
From the GUI you may load fasta files into a table and then run genome annotation or gene finding with custom databases. This program utilizes the sequence databases for gene finding compiled by abricate.
This program is under development. Suggestions are welcome.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install pathogenie, simply use the following command:
