I am trying to convert a bedgraph file to bigwig format through the method described here: Converstion of BED with scores into bigWig I had done this successfully many times on another computer, but today I had to install again everything. in order to install the bedgraphtobigwig tool, I installed Anaconda and followed the indications here presented: https://anaconda.org/bioconda/ucsc-bedgraphtobigwig. If I type conda list on my terminal I can see the package being present; nevertheless, if I then try to use the tool, only the following message is prompted: -bash: bedGraphToBigWig: command not found Has anyone incurred in this problem before? Any help is much appreciated!

I also tried by installing the binaries as explained in UCSC website at example3: https://genome.ucsc.edu/goldenpath/help/bigWig.html#Ex3, but still with no success.

From the top of my head, try

ucsc


Followed by TAB button. It could be that the installed commands have “ucsc” prefix

no, unfortunately, it is not present neither as bedGrapgToBigWig nor as ucsc-bedgraphtobigwig (even though the second one is listed among the conda packages)

This is really strange, I tried on my computer

conda install -c bioconda ucsc-bedgraphtobigwig


and it worked. It was installed in ~/miniconda3/bin and I could execute "bedGraphToBigWig". One thing you could try (sorry, maybe you have checked it already) whether the path to your conda is in the $PATH (echo$PATH).

If I check the $PATH I obtain this: /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.9/bin:/opt/anaconda3/condabin:/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.6/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Library/TeX/texbin:/opt/X11/bin:/Library/Apple/usr/bin though I am not so sure what to gather from this.. ADD REPLY 0 Entering edit mode Interesting that your conda was apparently installed in /opt. One more thing: could you run find / -name 'bedGraphToBigWig'  You will receive a lot of Operation not permitted but if bedGraphToBigWig is installed, we will see where it is. Then we have to adjust your$PATH.

So, it was a lot of operation not permitted and permission denied as you said, but at the end also:

/opt/anaconda3/bin/bedGraphToBigWig

/opt/anaconda3/pkgs/ucsc-bedgraphtobigwig-377-h516baf0_1/bin/bedGraphToBigWig

btw thank you so much for all your help..!

So there are two possibilities:

• using absolute path to bedGraphToBigBig: /opt/anaconda3/bin/bedGraphToBigWig
