Running the actual assemblyΒΆ

Now we’ll assemble all of these reads into a transcriptome, using the Trinity de novo transcriptome assembler.

We’ve already installed the prerequisites (see Installation of base image); now, install Trinity v2.2.0 itself:

curl -L > trinity.tar.gz
tar xzf trinity.tar.gz
mv trinityrnaseq* trinity/

cd trinity

Go into the work directory, and prepare the data:

cd /mnt/work
for i in *.dn.fq.gz
do $i

cat *.1 > left.fq
cat *.2 > right.fq

Now, run the Trinity assembler:

~/trinity/Trinity --left left.fq --right right.fq --seqType fq --max_memory 5G --bypass_java_version_check

This will give you an output file trinity_out_dir/Trinity.fasta.

Let’s copy that to a safe place, where we’ll work with it moving forward:

cp trinity_out_dir/Trinity.fasta rna-assembly.fa
