How To Install stops on Fedora 34

In this tutorial, we will discuss How To Install stops on Fedora 34 using dnf and yum package managers. Also, we will demonstrate how to uninstall and update stops as well.

One-liner Install Command

If you are only interested in the installation command, here is a quick answer for you:

sudo yum makecache && sudo yum -y install staden
or if you use dnf:
sudo dnf makecache && sudo dnf -y install staden

But if you are interested in the details with step-by-step instructions, the following information will be helpful.

What is stops and How to Install It?

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.

There are several ways to install stops 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.

Install stops on Fedora 34 using dnf

First, update dnf packages database with dnf by running the next command:

After updating database, You can install stops using dnf by running the following command:

Install stops on Fedora 34 using yum

Because stops is available in Fedora 34’s default repositories, it is possible to install it from these repositories using the yum packaging system.

To begin, update local packages database with yum using the following command.

sudo yum makecache --refresh

Now can install stops package on your server/computer by running the following command:

sudo yum -y install staden

How to upgrade (update) a single package stops using yum?

To update all the packages available on the system:

yum update

If you want to update a specific package like stops in this example you should use the following command:

yum update staden

To downgrade a package to an earlier version:

yum downgrade staden

How to Upgrade stops on Fedora 34 with dnf?

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 staden

How To remove stops from Fedora 34

To uninstall only the stops package you can execute the following command:

sudo dnf remove staden

Extra info and code examples

Staden is a fully developed set of DNA sequence assembly (Gap4 and Gap5), editing and analysis tools (Spin). Gap4 performs sequence assembly, contig ordering based on read pair data, contig joining based on sequence comparisons, assembly checking, repeat searching, experiment suggestion, read pair analysis and contig editing. It has graphical views of contigs, templates, readings and traces which all scroll in register. Contig editor searches and experiment suggestion routines use confidence values to calculate the confidence of the consensus sequence and hence identify only places requiring visual trace inspection or extra data. The result is extremely rapid finishing and a consensus of known accuracy. Pregap4 provides a graphical user interface to set up the processing required to prepare trace data for assembly or analysis, and automates these processes. Trev is a rapid and flexible viewer and editor for ABI, ALF, SCF and ZTR trace files. Prefinish analyses partially completed sequence assemblies and suggests the most efficient set of experiments to help finish the project. Tracediff and hetscan automatically locate mutations by comparing trace data against reference traces. They annotate the mutations found ready for viewing in gap4. Spin analyses nucleotide sequences to find genes, restriction sites, motifs, etc. It can perform translations, find open reading frames, count codons, etc. Many results are presented graphically and a sliding sequence window is linked to the graphics cursor. Spin also compares pairs of sequences in many ways. It has very rapid dot matrix analysis, global and local alignment algorithms, plus a sliding sequence window linked to the graphical plots. It can compare nucleic acid against nucleic acid, protein against protein, and protein against nucleic acid.


You now have a full guide on how to install stops using dnf and yum package managers. Also, we showed how to update manually as a single package and different ways to uninstall the stops from Fedora 34.
