Apologies if the post is unjustified, however I am struggling to use SPAdes assembly software.
I have 18 single reads for which I am trying to build contigs from using SPAdes.
Unfortunately I have very limited experience of coding and cmd line and am finding it very difficult.
I have successfully installed the program and test runs correctly. However have encountered errors when trying to run (see below)
''Gareths-MacBook-Pro:bin Gareth$ python spades.py --careful -o SPAdes_out -s Macintosh HD/Spades/input/input.fas
== Error == Please specify option (e.g. -1, -2, -s, etc) for the following paths: HD/Spades/input/input.fas''
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
