- recipe biodiff
exact comparison of biological sequences
biodiff is a variant caller that determines the exact differences between two biological sequences. It can operate on DNA and protein sequences, as long as they are in fasta format. The sequences to be compared must have the same fasta header (up to the first whitespace). If the reference and query each have only one sequence, however, the header need not match and the comparison will be done, but a warning will be emitted. Output is in the Variant Call Format.
- package biodiff¶
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 biodiff and update with:: mamba update biodiff
To create a new environment, run:
mamba create --name myenvname biodiff
myenvnamebeing a reasonable name for the environment (see e.g. the mamba docs for details and further options).
Alternatively, use the docker container:
docker pull quay.io/biocontainers/biodiff:<tag> (see `biodiff/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
