  • Show a Tanuki with Samtools!
    2 projects | dev.to | 18 Oct 2022
    First, let's make sure that Samtools can be built successfully. Note that the build requires htslib and other dependencies. In my case, I put htslib directory in the same directory as samtools because I build htslib by myself for htslib binding of Crystal language which I make for my personal interest. If you put htslib here, samtools can detect it automatically. htslib requires submodules git submodule update -i --recursive. If you get stuck, please google it. It would be safer to check out a stable tag git checkout 1.16.1, and switch to a new branch git switch tanuki. It is up to you.
