I tried installing featurecounts package in command line (in a new environment)

The command I used is conda create -n featurecounts featurecounts The error I'm getting is PackagesNotFoundError: The following packages are not available from current channels:

• featurecounts

I'm sorry for asking a trivial question I'm a complete novice in this.

command line counts Feature • 455 views

I installed this awhile ago, so I'm not 100% sure, but I think featureCounts tool is distributed in the subread suitcase of tools.

Therefore, if you want to install featureCounts tool, you need to install subread. Try the following to install the latest version:

conda create -n featurecounts -c bioconda subread


Specify the bioconda channel. You may want to install a specific version. If so, search for it in the Anaconda repository.

I hope this helps,

António

Actually, I only realized that the user wanted to build a conda environment with featureCounts after reading your answer. I guess we both needed a coffee...

You're almost there, you just need to add the bioconda channel

EDITH: antonioggsousa is completely right, it's the subread package

conda create -c bioconda -n featurecounts subread
