Exclamation Overlap prep job failed

I am trying to do the example here


specially this type "Correction using complementary data";

I used this commands

java -jar convertFastaAndQualToFastq.jar pacbio.filtered_subreads.fasta > pacbio.filtered_subreads.fastq

/bin/fastqToCA -libraryname illumina -technology illumina -type sanger -innie -reads illumina.fastq > illumina.frg
/bin/PBcR -length 500 -partitions 200 -l lambdaIll -s pacbio.spec -fastq pacbio.filtered_subreads.fastq genomeSize=50000 illumina.frg
but it gives me this Error

Dumping 7550 fragments from library IID 2
/home/medhat/Downloads/sampleData//templambdaIll/1-overlapper/ 2

I used totally different machine and it gives me this error

Can you paste the contents of your pacbio.spec file?

I'm having the same issue.

ERROR: Overlap prep job /gnmP04/Soryzae/RawandFilteredReads/Illumina/PE/CA//temppacbio/1-overlapper/long_reads_part 2 FAILED.

2 overlap partitioning jobs failed.

I have tried modifying the pacbio.spec file, the only line I'm keeping is merylMemory = 32000.

And the command I'm using is PBcR -length 500 -partitions 200 -libraryname pacbio -threads 20 -s pacbio.spec -fastq allreads.fastq illuminaPE.frg

Does anyone have any idea of what could be the issue?

Thanks in advance!

I wanted to respond to his still unanswered question because I ran into this issue this week.

I discovered that there is an error file in the 1-overlapper directory ending with *.err. Inside it said that the binary sawriter was missing.

I suggest reading through any error files produced in that directory, if there is any mention of sawriter, you'll need to install blasr and perhaps the library it depends on hdf5.

After installing the PBcR stopped giving me that particular error.

Here's the thread that helped me:
