Setting up MetaCoAG

You can install MetaCoAG via Bioconda. You can download Anaconda or Miniconda which contains Conda.

Once you have installed Conda, add channels as follows.

conda config --add channels defaults
conda config --add channels bioconda
conda config --add channels conda-forge

Now you can install MetaCoAG directly from the bioconda distribution using the command

conda install -c bioconda metacoag

You can also create a new conda environment and install MetaCoAG from bioconda using the following command and activate it.

conda create -n metacoag -c bioconda metacoag
conda activate metacoag

After setup, check if MetaCoAG is properly installed by typing metacoag -h on the command line. You should see the usage options.

If you want to switch back to your normal environment, run the following command.

conda deactivate

Now let's prepare our results to run MetaCoAG.
