Scrappie has been written by the Oxford Nanopore Technologies Research Algorithms group to demonstrate the next generation of base calling.

Scrappie is available as a module on Apocrita.


AVX2 instruction set required

Scrappie requires the AVX2 instruction set; Running on nodes without this instruction set will cause the job to fail. See this page for a table of supported instruction sets on each node type.

To run the latest installed version of Scrappie, simply load the scrappie module:

module load scrappie

For usage documentation, run scrappie help [program].

Example job

Serial job

Here is an example job to predict squiggles, running on 1 core and 1GB of memory:

#$ -cwd
#$ -j y
#$ -pe smp 1
#$ -l h_rt=1:0:0
#$ -l h_vmem=1G

module load scrappie
scrappie --output=squiggle.out input.fa
