GHOSTZ is a highly efficient remote homologue detection tool







doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btu780

GHOSTZ is a homology search tool which can detect remote homologues like BLAST and is about 200 times more efficient than BLAST by using database subsequence clustering. GHOSTZ outputs search results in the format similar to BLAST-tabular format.

You need a conda-compatible package manager (currently either micromamba, mamba, or conda) and the Bioconda channel already activated (see set-up-channels).

While any of above package managers is fine, it is currently recommended to use either micromamba or mamba (see here for installation instructions). We will show all commands using mamba below, but the arguments are the same for the two others.

Given that you already have a conda environment in which you want to have this package, install with:

   mamba install ghostz

and update with::

   mamba update ghostz

To create a new environment, run:

mamba create --name myenvname ghostz

with myenvname being a reasonable name for the environment (see e.g. the mamba docs for details and further options).

Alternatively, use the docker container:

   docker pull<tag>

(see `ghostz/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
