I am trying to create the k-mer hash table with velveth, with this command line:
velveth directory 15,49 -fasta -shortPaired interleavedInputFile.fasta
My issue here is that I get "Velvet can't handle k-mers as long as 49! We'll stick to 32 if you don't mind". I searched in other posts and figured I need to change the Makefile from Velvet directory, where 'MAXKMERLENGTH=31', to the number I wished.
After changing this, there was no change.
I also tried by writing
make ’MAXKMERLENGTH=57’ at the directory when compiling, but the terminal just doesn't respond.
What am I doing wrong?
