recipe bioconductor-crisprbwa

BWA-based alignment of CRISPR gRNA spacer sequences






Provides a user-friendly interface to map on-targets and off-targets of CRISPR gRNA spacer sequences using bwa. The alignment is fast, and can be performed using either commonly-used or custom CRISPR nucleases. The alignment can work with any reference or custom genomes. Currently not supported on Windows machines.

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 bioconductor-crisprbwa

and update with::

   mamba update bioconductor-crisprbwa

To create a new environment, run:

mamba create --name myenvname bioconductor-crisprbwa

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 `bioconductor-crisprbwa/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
