Is there an alternative installation and deployment Artic package that does not require conda? The High Performance Computing cluster I would like to deploy on does not support conda.
Could you use a Singularity container?
If you make sure the dependencies are all compatible with the conda environment settings from github, it shouldn’t be an issue. However, if there are any updates to the SOP, you might be in for a fun evening of compilation and re-installation. From my gathering, nanopolish and medaka are the main protagonists in dependency complications. Both are co-existing happily together on my workstation, without conda.
A few colleagues and I are preparing some bash scripts that are compatible with the ARTIC SOP. I’ll plug them together with a more verbose tutorial into a README and make a pull request once the kinks are ironed out.
