Quick Start

Test Data

Input File(s)

Use 10K_SRR192294_1.fastq (2.4M) and 10K_SRR192294_2.fastq (2.4M) as test data. Import from URL to get the data into your Discovery Environment account.

Parameters Used in App

When the app is run in the Discovery Environment, use the following parameters with the above input file(s) to get the output provided in the next section below.

  • Select a reference genome from the list - Brachypodium distachyon (line Bd21) v1
  • All other parameters remain in their default state

Output File(s)

Expect a SAM file named after the input files as output. For the test case, the output file is 10K_SRR192294_1.fastq-10K_SRR192294_2.fastq.sam (4.8M)
