Hi! I'm new to bioinformatics and linux. I've downloaded the latest pre-compiled binary version of SOAPdenovo2 and placed it in a directory in my Desktop. I unpacked it using tar -zxf. I also created a config file and have all my fastq, fasta and bam files ready on another directory in my Desktop.
My issue is that when I change directory to /bin to execute (i supposed i have to go there to execute it) and type the command:
/path/SOAPdenovo-63mer all -s /path/config_file -K 63 -R -o graph_prefix 1>ass.log 2>ass.err
I get Bash: ass.log permission denied
I already tried chmod 777 to SOAPdenovo-63mer and to ass.log so that they have all the permissions and even added from /etc with sudo nano /etc/sudoers the user to execute with admin permission eve though there's only one user and is the admin.
What should I do? Thanks!!
