I am very new to bioinformatics and am trying to learn how to run a SNP and indel software package.
I have downloaded the files from this website: https://sfu-compbio.github.io/sinvict/
I am attempting to install it - and have this from the manual.
"To install SiNVICT, first you should fetch it from our git repository, or download one of the corresponding compressed zip/tar.gz packages. After downloading, change the current directory to the source directory sinvict, and run make in the terminal. The sinvict binary will be created, which is ready to use."
I do not understand the phrase "change the current directory to the source directory sinvict". Can someone explain this to me in very simple terms? Or help with a step by step instruction as to what I need to do to begin using this program?
Thanks so much in advance.
