@sletort: Yes, they are there in the PATH. These are all available in the path:

  • bowtie2
  • bowtie2-align-l
  • bowtie2-align-s
  • bowtie2-build
  • bowtie2-build-l
  • bowtie2-build-s
  • bowtie2-inspect
  • bowtie2-inspect-l
  • bowtie2-inspect-s

But I'll update the documentation and give examples.

None of the bowtie2 executables are in the PATH.
It is not obvious to use them from their install dir.
