  • Hi Marc-Antoine, a member of our team recommends having a look at SvABA as an alternative
    https://genome.cshlp.org/content/early/2018/03/13/gr.221028.117
    It is already installed in the MUGQIC stack on cedar, guillimin, mp2 and others:

    Cvmfs Modules_beta2


    The same person also reports tools from this github user to be a nightmare to install with many dependencies. 
    If installation is your problem you may want to try your luck with Compute Canada at support@computecanada.ca (official cvmfs software stack) or C3G at help@computationalgenomics.ca (mugqic cvmfs stack)
