For this script to work properly, you should have gbs folder in your home directory, and jobs and projects folders inside gbs

Only copy the code, not the guiding text. Once you have the full script copied in a simple text file with extension .sh, the name variable should be replaced with something more explicit, such as hessian_F3 for a Hessian fly project with F3 population. To do this in a semi-automatic fashion, use find and replace function in your text editor and replace name variable with hessian_F3 or any other project name.

To keep everything organized, I recommend using the same name for the project and the files, for example

Project name - hessian_F3

Keyfile - hessian_F3.txt

Shell script - hessian_F3.sh

Script can be also downloaded from here, but make sure to copy and paste in a simple text file with .sh extension, for example hessian_F3.sh.

Once the Keyfile and shell script are ready, put them in jobs folder and run qsub hessian_F3.sh

  • Start your script with the following piece of code. First line is called Shebang and is required for a shell script. The 'PATH' variable can be changed if the software is installed elsewhere, otherwise, leave it as it is
export PATH=$PATH:/homes/nss470/usr/bin:/homes/nss470/usr/bin/bin

  • Update the user variable with your K-State eID

  • Requesting beocat resources
#$ -l h_rt=60:00:00
#$ -l mem=64G
#$ -M your_email -m aes
#$ -N name
#$ -cwd

  • Path to keyfile --> keyfile should have following 4 mandatory headers

'Flowcell' 'Lane' 'Barcode' 'FullSampleName'

Place the keyfile in your 'jobs' folder. It should be renamed to the what you are replacing the name variable with, for example 'hessian_F3.txt'


  • Path to sequence directory

  • Database path (reference genome)

  • TASSEL5 path

  • Create required directories for output
mkdir /homes/$user/gbs/projects/name
mkdir /homes/$user/gbs/projects/name/keyFileSh
cd /homes/$user/gbs/projects/name

  • Running TASSEL 5 SNP calling pipeline in series of steps. Each step uses mostly the default settings that can be changed if desired

## Convert to Hapmap format
$tasselPath -Xms64G -Xmx64G -fork1 -vcf name.vcf \
	-export name -exportType Hapmap

  • Copy keyfile and .sh file for backup
mv /homes/$user/gbs/jobs/name.* keyFileSh/

If everything ran correctly, you should get a folder named hessian_F3 in your gbs/projects folder with all the output files including SNPs containing .vcf and .hmp.txt files that can be used for further analyses
