How to Run

Using Shasta

The Shasta binaries are located in /opt/shasta/bin.

To run the Shasta container with data located on your host, you will need to use bind mounts with the -v flag like the following:

docker run -v((HOST_DIRECTORY)):/mnt/data -t	
 shasta --input /mnt/data/((INPUT_PATH)) --threads 8 --assemblyDirectory /mnt/data/((OUTPUT_PATH))

The recommended configuration for shasta is using 8 threads with the --threads 8 option.

Please refer to the Shasta manual for further instructions:


Either a Jetson Xavier AGX device, or the Clara AGX Developer Kit running Jetpack 4.5 or later.


Licenses are available and can be viewed in the container. By pulling and using the container, you accept the terms and conditions of these licenses.
