How To ESTmapper

Chapter 1: Quick Start

Download the yeast genome and yeast ESTs.

ESTmapper needs to pre-compute data structures on the entire genome. This is done via the configureESTmapper.pl command:

% perl ESTmapper/bin/configureESTmapper.pl \
  -genome yeast_chr.fasta \
  -genomedir yeast

Once that is done, any amount of sequence can be ESTmapped to that genome.

% perl ESTmapper/bin/ESTmapper.pl \
  -genomedir yeast \
  -outputdir yeastmap \
  -mapest yeast_est.fasta \
  -verbose -aligns

Hooray! You've just mapped yeast ESTs!
