I´m using MALT for the first time and I have some doubts about building the index.
My command line for malt-build is :
malt-build -i /mnt/Archives/BLAST_databases/nt/. -d Index -a2taxonomy /mnt/Cromosoma/mbravo/malt/data/gi_taxid-March2015X.bin --sequenceType DNA
It creates the following files:
index0.idx ref.idx table0.db table0.idx
But those files were empty.
I then did the following:
malt-run -i /mnt/Cromosoma/mavila/vvilla/samples/Unmappedreads/ -d ./Index -m BlastN -o
Index is too old or incorrect file (wrong magic number). Please recompute index.
I don´t know what I`m doing wrong. I will appreciate any comment.
