I am having issues with installing ensembl’s vep on the HPC. It requires perl dependencies which I have successfully installed most of via anaconda. However I get the following error message when trying to run perl INSTALL.pl:
Can't locate Module/Build.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Module::Build module) (@INC contains: ./Bio /rds/general/user/pmwells/home/anaconda3/lib/site_perl/5.26.2/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /rds/general/user/pmwells/home/anaconda3/lib/site_perl/5.26.2 /rds/general/user/pmwells/home/anaconda3/lib/5.26.2/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /rds/general/user/pmwells/home/anaconda3/lib/5.26.2 .) at Build.PL line 20.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Build.PL line 20.
ERROR: Shared Bio::DB:HTS library not found
I therefore tried manually installing perl DB HTS as follows – conda install -c bioconda perl-bio-db-hts but I still get the same error message during the next installation step (runnning INSTALL.pl). I would be very grateful for advice
