RDP Tools Repository -- Run RDP Tools Locally

Install RDP tools to your local computer, available from GitHub https://github.com/rdpstaff
(RDP Aligners, Classifier, Clustering, FrameBot, GFClassify, Initial Process, KmerFilter, ProbeMatch, ReadSeq, SequenceMatch, SOAP-examples, Xander-HMMgs)

For the pre-compiled RDP Classifier and FrameBot command line tools and training data, visit Sourceforge:
and http://sourceforge.net/projects/rdpframebot/

The current training files and pre-built models for Infernal 1.1 are available here RDP 11 Aligner.

The RDP Paired-end Reads Assembler used in the publication Cole et al., 2014 is available here RDP Paired-end Reads Assembler. This version provides built-in quality filtering and more command-line options using the RDP algorithm than the one available on the original Pandaseq GitHub repository.
Note: if you run the Assembler program downloaded from the original Pandaseq GitHub repository, specify command-line option "-A rdp_mle" to use RDP's algorithm, and option "-C min_readqscore:25" to filter any assembled reads with Read Q score less than 25.

The most current RDP Classifier training sets (including 16S rRNA, fungal 28S, Warcup fungal ITS and UNITE fungal ITS) are available. The Fungal ITS Warcup V2 release notes is released in June 2016.


Release Alignment:


These files reflect the contents of the current RDP Release data. Please see the release notes for more information.

Details of sequence quality check by RDP is available.

These files were compressed using gzip. Common decompression programs should be able to decompress these files. Mac OS X and Linux should have built in support for gzip. Windows users may consider the free and open source decompression program 7-Zip.

The aligned files will unzip to 2-30 GB in size. Lack of available disk space is the most commonly encountered problem when decompressing these files.
