Running Velvet from the Workbench

To run Velvet, open a Workbench and connect to a server where the Velvet external application is installed. Then:

The process that follows has four steps:

  1. The sequencing reads are exported by the server to a fasta format file. This is a temporary file that will be deleted when the process is done.
  2. The velvet script is executed using the fasta file and the user-specified parameters as input.
  3. The resulting output file is imported into the save location specified in the save step of the Workbench dialog, and the user is notified that the process is done.
  4. All temporary files are deleted
