AutoSnapGene can be installed from PyPI:
$ pip install autosnapgene
You can check that the installation worked:
$ autosnapgene Perform batch operations on SnapGene files...
If you want to be able to use AutoSnapGene to add sequencing traces to
files, you also need to install io_lib from the Staden package. Specifically, the
command must be on your
$PATH. This program is used to convert traces to
the ZTR format used internally by SnapGene. If you’re using Linux, you can
probably install Staden io_lib from your package manager:
$ sudo apt-get install staden-io-lib-utils
$ sudo dnf install staden-io_lib
Arch (via AUR):
$ https://aur.archlinux.org/staden-io_lib.git $ cd staden-io_lib $ less PKGBUILD $ makepkg -si
Otherwise, you’ll need to build Staden io_lib from its source code. Refer to the above link for the most up-to-date instructions.
