Is there any on-line documentation about the software ?
What language(s) is the software written in ?
What Operating Systems can the software run on ?
How can one install the software ?
What other software does the software require to be installed ?
[OPTIONAL] Are there estimates of how long it takes to run this software on average ?
[OPTIONAL] Are there any memory requirements for this software ?
[OPTIONAL] Are there any other important details about the implementation of this code (parallelization, special hardware, etc) ?
Run - Testing execution
Is there any test data available for the software ?
[OPTIONAL] Are there any specific instructions for testing the software ?
Experiment - Run with other data
What input files does the software require ?
BAM (binary alignment format) files are. The input file can be reads successfully aligned to the genome/ reads that were not mapped. Standard for Next generation sequencing data.
What are the input parameters used for this software?
What output files does the software produce ?
The file with “indices” of the BAM file. This contains information of what sequences mapped/ did not map to the genome. The output filename from WiINGS is a dummy/black file because the samtools index file is “required” to have the same name as the inputBamFile but with “bai” extension.
[OPTIONAL] Are there any relevant data catalogs that can be used with this software ?
Compose - Run with other software
