dbAutoMaker requires Perl, available for many operating systems, and several Perl modules:
These Perl modules can be installed through CPAN on a command line using:
perl -MCPAN -e "install Config::Simple" perl -MCPAN -e "install LWP::Simple" perl -MCPAN -e "install Archive::Extract" perl -MCPAN -e "install File::Spec"
Generate SNP Databases for Supported Species
dbAutoMaker can be used to generate SNP databases for any species that contains SNPs in dbSNP. For convenience, we provide configuration files for several species:
Generate SNP Databases for Other Species in dbSNP
You can choose to configure dbAutoMaker to automatically create a customised SNP database for any species that contains SNPs in dbSNP. We recommend the use of FunctSNP, an R interface to the databases generated for these species.
See section Installation and Configuring dbAutomaker in dbAutoMaker User Guide.
Generate Generic Local Database
You can configure dbAutoMaker to create a local database with data extracted from any type of online resource that provides data to the public.
See section Installation and Creating your own local database from scratch in dbAutoMaker User Guide.
