I analyze several samples every day for variant analysis using align to reference method. For this purpose I use different Bioinformatics software such as Bowtie2/BWA, Samtools, and Freebayes. Is there a way in which I can know which version of software was used to process a particular sample. This should work like an audit trail, informing say Sample1 was aligned using bowtie2 vX.X.X, Sample2 was analysed using Bowtie2 vX.X.Y, and so on.
bowtie2 --version command gives the output of Bowtie2 installed on the system as follows:
/usr/local/bin/bowtie2-align-s version 2.2.2 64-bit
samtools view -H sample.sorted.bam
@HD VN:1.0 SO:coordinate
@SQ SN: reference LN:
VN:2.2.2 CL:"/usr/local/bin/bowtie2-align-s --wrapper basic-0 -x -I 0 -X 1000 --fr -p 16 --local --passthrough -1 /tmp/40466.inpipe1 -2 /tmp/40466.inpipe2"
Both these commands do not tell that Sample1 was processed using bowtie2, Sample2 was processed using Bowtie2 and so on.
I would like to get an audit trail, where I will know for each software which version was used to process which sample.
