MuTect Installation

MuTect is a method developed at the Broad Institute for the reliable and accurate identification of somatic point mutations in next generation sequencing data of cancer genomes.

For complete details, please see the publication in Nature Biotechnology:

Cibulskis, K. et al. Sensitive detection of somatic point mutations in impure and heterogeneous cancer samples. Nat Biotechnology (2013).doi:10.1038/nbt.2514

Note that muTect-1.1.4-bin.zip is a zipbomb. Useless developers.


cd /usr/local/src/MUTETC
mkdir /usr/local/src/1.1.4
mv muTect-1.1.4-bin.zip 1.1.4
unzip muTect-1.1.4-bin.zip
mkdir -p /usr/local/mutect/1.1.4
cd /usr/local/mutect/1.1.4
cp /usr/local/src/MUTECT/1.1.4/* .

Change to the appropriate modules directory, check for .desc and .version and .base, create a symblink to .base


cd /usr/local/Modules/modulefiles/mutect
ln -s .base 1.1.4

The .base module takes the following form.
