This is only useful to Sanger people, but extremely useful!
Finding assemblies and gff files
Find genome assemblies for Schistosoma mansoni:
% reffind -s 'Schistosoma mansoni' -f fa
% reffind -sp mansoni -f fa
Find gff files for Schistosoma mansoni:
% reffind -s 'Schistosoma mansoni' -f gff
Find embl files for Schistosoma mansoni:
% reffind -s 'Schistosoma mansoni' -f embl
Finding fastq and bam files
Find bam files and fastq files for lane 9342_8#6:
% pathfind --t lane --id 9342_8#6
Make a file of all the fastq files for all the lanes listed in an input file "lanelist":
% pathfind --t file --id lanelist --f fastq > lanelist_reads
This makes a file lanelist_reads with the locations of all the fastq files.
Note: in '9342_8#6' the run is 9342, the lane is 8, and 6 is the tag (several samples were multiplexed together in one lane, and given different tags).
Note: 26-Apr-2018: use 'pf' instead of 'pathfind' as 'pf' will always be the latest version of the script (thanks to Victoria Offord for this).
Getting a UniProt entry
Get the UniProt entry H2L008.1:
% mfetch H2L008.1
Getting statistics about a sequencing lane (read length, etc.)
% pathfind -t lane -id 9342_8#6 -stats
This makes a file 9342_8#6.pathfind_stats.csv in your directory, with statistics eg. read length, number of bases sequenced, mean insert size, depth of coverage, etc.
Thanks to Victoria Offord for advice on pathfind.
