This is my first time using Canu assembler. I have PacBio reads in a fastq format, and here some informations about : -computer : 32 CPUs and 126 gigabytes of memory -java environment : Java(TM) Runtime Environment '1.8.0_91
I'm trying to make an assembly of a Drosophila genome : D. suzukii (Yes I did a little misstake in the output directory but it's not a big deal)
I tried the folowing command :
perl canu -assemble -p susuzkii_canu -d /media/loutre/DATAPART1/Documents/suzukii_assembly/canu_assembly genomeSize=150000000 -pacbio-raw /media/loutre/DATAPART1/Documents/suzukii_assembly/pacbio_reads/filtered_subreads.fastq
At first sight, it seems to work well, but after a while, I got this error :
*meryl failed. Don't panic, but a mostly harmless error occurred and canu failed. canu failed with 'failed to generate mer counts. Made 2 attempts, jobs still failed'.*
I can't figure out what's wrong... Any ideas ? Thanks for your help !
