Full Description

StrainEst - Docker

StrainEst is a reference-based method that leverages on the accumulated knowledge of the genomic variability of species of interests to identify individual strains and quantify their relative abundances in mixed metagenomic samples.

Sickle, Bowtie2 and samtools are preinstalled.


Available Tags/Versions

  • latest: GitHub snapshot (master)
  • 1.2.2: strainest 1.2.2
  • 1.2.1: strainest 1.2.1


  1. Download the latest version:

    docker pull compmetagen/strainest

  2. Run an instance of the image, mounting the host working directory
    (e.g. /Users/davide/strainest) on to the container working directory

    docker run --rm -t -i -v /Users/davide/strainest:/strainest -w /strainest compmetagen/strainest /bin/bash

    You need to write something like -v //c/Users/davide/strainest:/strainest if
    you are in Windows or -v /home/davide/strainest:/strainest in Linux. The
    --rm option automatically removes the container when it exits.

  3. Run micca without parameters:

    root@68f6784e1101:/strainest# strainest --help
