How To Install estwisedb on Fedora 34
In this tutorial, we will discuss How To Install estwisedb on Fedora 34
yum package managers.
Also, we will demonstrate how to uninstall and update
estwisedb as well.
If you are only interested in the installation command, here is a quick answer for you:
or if you use
sudo yum makecache && sudo yum -y install wise2
sudo dnf makecache && sudo dnf -y install wise2
But if you are interested in the details with step-by-step instructions, the following information will be helpful.
Short description: comparison of biopolymers, like DNA and protein sequences
First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running Fedora 34. This guide was written specifically with a server running Fedora 34 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.
Also, make sure you are running a regular, non-root user with sudo privileges configured on your server. When you have an account available, log in as your non-root user to begin.
There are several ways to install estwisedb on Fedora 34. You can use (links are clickable):
In the following sections, we will describe each method in detail. You can choose one of them or refer to the recommended one.
First, update dnf packages database with
dnf by running the next command:
sudo dnf makecache --refresh
After updating database,
You can install estwisedb using
dnf by running the
sudo dnf -y install wise2
Because estwisedb is available in Fedora 34’s default
it is possible to install it from these repositories using the
To begin, update local packages database with
yum using the following command.
sudo yum makecache --refresh
Now can install estwisedb package on your server/computer by running the following command:
sudo yum -y install wise2
To update all the packages available on the system:
If you want to update a specific package like estwisedb in this example you should use the following command:
yum update wise2
To downgrade a package to an earlier version:
yum downgrade wise2
When you run the
dnf update, all system packages with available updates are updated.
However, if you want to upgrade a single package, then you would have to pass the package name as
the argument to the dnf update command.
dnf update wise2
To uninstall only the
estwisedb package you can execute
sudo dnf remove wise2
Wise2 is a package focused on comparisons of biopolymers, commonly DNA and protein sequences. There are many other packages which do this, probably the best known being BLAST package (from NCBI) and the Fasta package (from Bill Pearson). There are other packages, such as the HMMER package (Sean Eddy) or SAM package (UC Santa Cruz) focused on hidden Markov models (HMMs) of biopolymers. Wise2's particular forte is the comparison of DNA sequence at the level of its protein translation. This comparison allows the simultaneous prediction of say gene structure with homology based alignment. Wise2 also contains other algorithms, such as the venerable Smith-Waterman algorithm, or more modern ones such as Stephen Altschul's generalised gap penalties, or even experimental ones developed in house, such as dba. The development of these algorithms is due to the ease of developing such algorithms in the environment used by Wise2. Wise2 has also been written with an eye for reuse and maintainability. Although it is a pure C package you can access its functionality directly in Perl. Parts of the package (or the entire package) can be used by other C or C++ programs without namespace clashes as all externally linked variables have the unique identifier Wise2 prepended.
You now have a full guide on how to install
yum package managers.
Also, we showed how to update manually as a single package and different ways to uninstall
the estwisedb from Fedora 34.
