sourmash tutorials and notebooks¶
The first three tutorials!¶
These tutorials are command line tutorials that should work on Mac OS X and Linux. They require about 5 GB of disk space and 5 GB of RAM.
Background and details¶
These next three tutorials are all notebooks that you can view, run yourself, or run interactively online via the binder service.
Advanced tutorials and more information¶
For more information on analyzing sequencing data with sourmash, check out our longer tutorial.
sourmash taxonomy with the Life Identification Number (LIN) taxonomic framework for some of our newer taxonomic features.
If you prefer R, we have a short guide to using sourmash output with R.
Customizing matrix and dendrogram plots in Python¶
If you’re interested in customizing the output of
which produces comparison matrices and dendrograms, please see
