khmer¶

khmer is a library and suite of command line tools for working with DNA sequence. It is primarily aimed at short-read sequencing data such as that produced by the Illumina platform. khmer takes a k-mer-centric approach to sequence analysis, hence the name.

Installation¶

With an activated Bioconda channel (see 2. Set up channels), install with:

conda install khmer
