It contains conversion tools, to convert from .sam (sequence alignment mapping) format to .Xsam (extended sequence alignment mapping) format, as well as conversion from .Xsam to .sam, .fastq and more. Xsamkit also contains a multitude of filtering options that allows fast querying of the .Xsam file.

Enable snaps on Kubuntu and install xsamkit

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.

Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.

Enable snapd

If you’re running Kubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) or later, including Kubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) and Kubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish), you don’t need to do anything. Snap is already installed and ready to go.

Versions of Kubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) don’t include snap by default, but snap can be installed from the command line as follows:

sudo apt update sudo apt install snapd
