Hi Brian,

I got a file with cleaned sequence data and I want to assemble this de-novo using velvet. Due to the nature of the sequencing and the library protocol, my kmer coverage is quite variable and I wanted to use BBnorm to normalize the coverage a bit to aid the assembly. Am I correct that BBnorm is the right thing to use for this?

Anyway, currently trying to give it a go and I got this error message:

bbmap$ sh in=Fowleri_combined.fastq out=normFowleri.fastq target=15 104: Bad substitution 112: [[: not found 112: [[: not found 118: source: not found 119: parseXmx: not found 120: [[: not found 123: freeRam: not found
java -ea -Xmxm -cp /home/martin/Downloads/bbmap/current/ jgi.KmerNormalize bits=32 in=Fowleri_combined.fastq
Invalid maximum heap size: -Xmxm
Could not create the Java virtual machine.

Any ideas?

Many thanks,
