I have installed SortMeRNA using conda (manual see here:http://bioinfo.lifl.fr/RNA/sortmerna/code/SortMeRNA-user-manual-v2.0.pdf). SortMeRNA can remove reads that map to rRNA sequences. The tool says that it comes prepackaged with a set of rRNA databases. They are supposed to be located in a folder called "sortmerna/rRNA_databases".
I have found two paths which could potentially lead to this folder,
However, non of these paths contains a subfolder named "rRNA_databases". Also using
find . -type d -name "rRNA*" at the highest level of my file system does not give any results.
Why can't I find the databases? Is it possible that the conda install version cames without these database files? Sorry for the potentially stupid problem.
