1) Hi, Im using Mac OS and I'm having difficulty to run fastqc using terminal. It shows like this:

This is the source distribution of FastQC. You need to get the compiled version if you want to run the program

i've downloaded many time including the zip file. What should i do?

2) Another problem is the module command. I used "module load FastQC/0.11.2" and has error message like this: -bash: module: command not found

I really need your help. Tq

Did you follow these steps ? https://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/projects/fastqc/INSTALL.txt

OSX: On newer versions of OSX you need to install the Java Development Kit. The normal Java runtime environment IS NOT enough. To get this go to java.com, click "Free java download", then IGNORE the big red button, and select "See all java downloads", on the next screen select "Looking for the JDK?" from the left hand menu and select the link to "JDK downloads" in the first paragraph. You can then click the "Download" button underneath JDK in the page you are taken to. Sorry this is such a pain!

If you're on Mac OS you do not need a zip file but a DMG image

FastQC v0.11.7 (Mac DMG image)

I added code markup to your post for increased readability. You can do this by selecting the text and clicking the 101010 button. When you compose or edit a post that button is in your toolbar, see image below:

It seems like your first have to compile fastQc in your system.

Also the 'module' system will not be present if it has not been installed separately (this has nothing to do with FastQC itself though) and you don't actually need it to run FastQC

How to compile? I don't really understand that part

And if i may ask, how to install 'module'?

Follow the instructions as indicated by Bastien Hervé , (it is not actually compiling the software but anyway).

I would personally not bother installing the whole module systems if you are running this on your own personal device. Just call FastQC directly
