I was having issues creating new conda environments containing bowtie2. For example:
$ conda create -n bttest -c bioconda bowtie2 $ conda activate bttest $ bowtie2 ~/.conda/envs/bttest/bin/bowtie2-align-s: error while loading shared libraries: libtbb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory (ERR): Description of arguments failed! Exiting now ...
I found that downgrading to
tbb=2020.2 fixes the problem, the 2021.1. This fixes the problem (within the env above):
$ conda install tbb=2020.2 $ bowtie2 -h
Hoping this saves someone else a few minutes!
