NAME

mason_genome - Random Genome Simulation

SYNOPSIS

mason_genome [OPTIONS] [-l LEN]+ -o OUT.fa

DESCRIPTION

Simulate a random genome to the output file. For each -l/--contig-length entry, a contig with the given length will be simulated.

OPTIONS

-h, --help
Display the help message.
--version
Display version information.
-q, --quiet
Set verbosity to a minimum.
-v, --verbose
Enable verbose output.
-vv, --very-verbose

-s, --seed INTEGER
The seed to use for the random number generator. Default: 0.

Output Options:

-o, --out-file OUTPUT_FILE
Output file. Valid filetypes are: .sam[.*], .raw[.*], .frn[.*], .fq[.*], .fna[.*], .ffn[.*], .fastq[.*], .fasta[.*], .faa[.*], .fa[.*], and .bam, where * is any of the following extensions: gz, bz2, and bgzf for transparent (de)compression.

EXAMPLES

mason_genome -l 1000 -l 4000 -o genome.fa
Simulate a genome with two contigs of lengths 1000 and 4000 and write it to genome.fa.
