Installing External Tools for Sequencher
p. 2 of 6
Introduction
With the advent of Next-Generation sequencing, several new external alignment algorithms have been integrated into
Sequencher to align the large quantity of data produced by Next-Generation sequencing machines. These algorithms,
BWA-MEM, GSNAP, Maq, and Velvet, join Clustal (the very first external algorithm to be added to
Sequencher). The MUSCLE external algorithm, while not an NGS algorithm, has also been added to Sequencher.
The BWA-MEM, GSNAP, Maq, MUSCLE, and Velvet algorithms were written to run on Unix-based systems. Mac
OS X is a Unix-based operating system. We have built native binaries for Windows, so that there is no longer any need to
have Cygwin, a Unix emulation environment, installed in order to run the alignment tools. To take full advantage of these
tools, you will also need to install Tablet—a third-party graphical viewer.
The instructions which follow show you how to use the all-in-one installers which will place almost everything you need to
run these algorithms on your computer. The Tablet viewer is a separate installer but only takes moments to install. The
FastQC installer is also a separate installer. Once FastQC is installed, you can generate FastQ Quality Control Reports
and display them in Sequencher.
Quick and Easy Set Up for NGS Aligners and Assemblers
INSTALLING EXTERNAL APPLICATIONS ON WINDOWS
The Windows installer will place BWA-MEM, GSNAP, Maq, Maqview, MUSCLE, Samtools, and Velvet
and their related files where they need to be. That location is Programs Files or Program Files (x86)/Gene
Codes/Sequencher External Tools. NOTE THAT GSNAP IS SUPPORTED AND INSTALLABLE ON 64-BIT
SYSTEMS ONLY SO THIS INSTALLER WILL NOT INSTALL IT ON 32-BIT SYSTEMS.
1. Download the DNA-Seq Tools Installer
http://www.genecodes.com/download.
zip
archive
from
the
Gene
Codes
website
at
2. Extract/unzip the archive and open the installer folder if it is not opened for you. It will contain DNASeqToolsInstaller.exe, Tablet, src, links, and ClustalW2 folders, and a License.txt file.
3. Double-click on DNA-SeqToolsInstaller.exe. Accept the installation defaults including the license
agreement terms.
4. A new window appears which shows the progress of the installer. When the installation is complete, BWA-MEM,
GSNAP (64-bit systems only), Maq, Maqview, MUSCLE, Samtools, and Velvet are ready for use in
Sequencher.
INSTALLING FASTQC ON WINDOWS
To install FastQC on your computer, follow these steps:
1. Download the FastQC Installer zip archive from the Gene Codes website at http://www.genecodes.com/download.

2. Extract/unzip the archive and open the installer folder if it is not opened for you. It will contain
FastQCInstaller.exe.
3. Double-click on FastQCInstaller.exe. Accept the installation defaults including the license agreement terms.
4. A new window appears which shows the progress of the installer. When the installation is complete, FastQC is ready
for use in Sequencher.
5. Note that Java version 1.7 or newer is needed in order to use FastQC with Sequencher on Windows 7. Version
1.8 or newer is needed on Windows 8.1. If Java is not installed on your computer, you can download it from
https://java.com/en/download.
INSTALLING THE TABLET VIEWER ON WINDOWS
To install the Tablet viewer on your computer, follow these steps:
1. Open the Tablet folder. There are two installers. The tablet_windows_x64 installer is for 64-bit systems and the
tablet_windows_x86 installer is for 32-bit systems.
2. Tablet requires administrator privileges in order to install. If you are an Administrator user, double-click on the
correct Tablet installer. If you are not an Administrator user, get assistance with getting administrator privileges so
you can install.
3. Accept all of the installation defaults. You will be prompted for a destination location for the installation. The default
location is Program Files\Tablet. Don’t change this location.
INSTALLING CLUSTAL ON WINDOWS
To install Clustal on your computer, follow these steps:
1. Open the ClustalW2 folder.
2. Clustal requires administrator privileges in order to install. If you are an Administrator user, double-click on the
Clustal installer. If you are not an Administrator user, get assistance with getting administrator privileges so you
can install.
3. Accept all of the installation defaults. You will be prompted for a destination location for the installation. The default
location is Program Files\ClustalW2 for 32-bit systems or Program Files (x86)\ClustalW2 for 64-bit systems. Don’t
change this location.
INSTALLING EXTERNAL APPLICATIONS ON MAC OS X
You must be an Administrator or have an administrator’s password in order to install the external tools on Mac. If you are
installing on a computer with OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) or above, change your security setting in User Preferences to Allow
applications downlaoded from: Anywhere. NOTE THAT GSNAP IS SUPPORTED AND INSTALLABLE ON 64BIT SYSTEMS ONLY SO THIS INSTALLER WILL NOT INSTALL IT ON 32-BIT SYSTEMS.

For a Standard Install, the Mac OS X installer will place Maq, Maqview, MUSCLE, Samtools, Velvet, and their
related files where they need to be. That location is /usr/local/bin. For BWA-MEM and GSNAP, that location is
/usr/local/GeneCodes. For a Custom install, the Mac OS X installer will place Samtools and any packages you select
where they need to be. Again, that location is /usr/local/bin (or /usr/local/GeneCodes for BWA-MEM and
GSNAP).
1. Download the DNA-Seq Tools installer disk image file (.dmg) from the Gene Codes website at
http://www.genecodes.com/download.
2. Double-click on the downloaded dmg file.
3. Double-click on the new volume icon named ‘DNA-Seq Tools Installer’ to open it if it doesn’t open automatically.
4. Double-click on the DNA-Seq Tools package to begin installation.
5. For a Standard install, accep installation defaults, including the license agreement. For a Custom install, again, accept
installation defaults, except on the Installation Type page, click on the Customize button and select the specific
packages you wish to install.
6. The installer starts. You will see various status messages as the files are written to your system. Finally, a screen
appears telling you that everything was installed successfully. Click on the Close button. The external tools, BWAMEM, GSNAP (64-bit systems only), Maq, Maqview, MUSCLE, Samtools, and Velvet are now ready
for use in Sequencher.
7. Eject the disk image icon from your desktop unless you are planning to install Clustal or the Tablet viewer next.
INSTALLING FASTQC ON MAC OS X
To install FastQC on your computer, follow these steps. The Mac OS X installer will place FastQC and its related files
where they need to be. That location is /usr/local/GeneCodes.
1. Download the FastQC installer disk image file (.dmg) from the Gene Codes website
http://www.genecodes.com/download.
2. Double-click on the downloaded dmg file.
3. Double-click on the new volume icon named ‘FastQC Installer’ to open it if it doesn’t open automatically.

Anywhere.
4. Double-click on the tablet.dmg file to open the installer.
5. Double-click on the Tablet Installer to start the installation.
6. Accept all of the installation defaults. You are prompted for a destination location for the installation. The default
location is Applications. Don’t change this location.
7. Eject the disk image icon from your desktop if you are done.
8. If you are on Mountain Lion or above and you changed the ‘Allow applications downloaded from:’ security setting to
Anywhere, change it back to ‘Mac App Store and identified developers’.
INSTALLING CLUSTAL ON MAC OS X
To install Clustal on your computer, follow these steps:
1. By default, Clustalw2 needs to be in the Applications folder and that is where Sequencher expects to find it.
2. Double-click on the Other Installers folder icon to open the folder.
3. Double-click on the clustalw2.dmg file.
4. Double-click on the clustalw-2.1-macosx folder to open the folder.

7. Eject the disk image icon from your desktop if you are done.
MORE INFORMATION
If you would like more information on BWA-MEM, FastQC, Maq, GSNAP, Velvet, or working with MIDs, refer to
the NGS for DNA and RNA-Seq chapter of the Sequencher User Manual, chapter 16. You will find this manual in the
Sequencher installation folder. You can also find additional information in the following tutorials : “Next Gen Sequence
Alignment”, “Advanced Next Gen Sequence Alignment”, “De Novo Sequence Assembly”, “FastQ Quality Control Reports”,
and “Multiplex IDs with BWA, GSNAP, and Velvet”.
