Configuration File

To download a configuration file template users just use --get_config parameter. Using a config file your code is lot more clean and concise.

# get config
nextflow run fmalmeida/bacannot --get_config
# run with config
nextflow run fmalmeida/bacannot -c [path-to-config]

Default configuration


                                          Required / Default Parameters.
                                        This parameters must always be set

params {




// Trigger database download and formatting workflow? --> will not run annotation
// Will download and format a database inside {output} parameter
  get_dbs      = false
  force_update = false




// Input data mus be given inside a well-formated samplesheet.
// We provide a well-formated example at:
// Please read the example samplesheet so you can understand how to properly fill it.
// It is also documented in the main manual:
  input = null

// path to directory containing databases used by bacannot
// you can download databases with: 
// nextflow run fmalmeida/bacannot --get_dbs --output bacannot_dbs -profile <docker/conda/singularity>

// Main output folder name. More than one bacannot annotation can be redirected
// to the same output parameter. It is good to keep related annotations together.
// A subdirectory with the filename will be created inside this directory.

// Number of minimum overlapping base pairs required for merging
// Negative values, such as -20, means the number of required overlapping bases for merging.
// Positive values, such as 5, means the maximum distance accepted between features for merging.
// By default (if Blank), this process is not executed. For execution the user needs to provide a value

           * Prokka optional parameters
// Do not use PGAP (NCBI) database?
// PGAP is big and using it may have higher running times but better results
// To do not use it, set the following to true
  prokka_use_pgap = false

           * Resfinder species panel

// Species panel to be used when annotating with Resfinder.
// It sets a default for all samples in the samplesheet.
// If a sample has a different value inside the samplesheet it will overwrite the value for that sample
// If blank it will not be executed.
// It must be identical (without the *) as written in their webservice

           * By default, all processes are executed. These
           * parameters tells wheter NOT to run a process.
           * Which means: false will allow its execution
           * while true will create a barrier and skip a process.

           * Custom databases can be used to annotate additional genes in the genome.
           * It runs a BLAST alignment against the genome, therefore, the custom database
           * More than one custom database can be given separated by commas.

           * the databases are protein-only, others are nucleotide only. We cannnot control
           * that and the databases will be scanned either if blastp or blastn using these
           * thresholds described here.
