STAR Genome index could not open genomeFastaFile

0

I'm trying to align a genome for the first time ever.

I downloaded the hg38.fa reference genome (from here wget hgdownload.soe.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/hg38/bigZips/hg38.fa.gz) and unziped it.

When I try building the Genome index with star using this command:

./STAR/source/STAR --runMode genomeGenerate --runThreadN 24 --genomeDir ./GenomeIndex --genomeFastaFiles hg38.fa 

I get the following error:

EXITING because of INPUT ERROR: could not open genomeFastaFile: hg38.fa 

I tried downloading the hg38.fa files from other sources (like ENSEMBL) and I get the same error.

What am I doing wrong?


RNAseq


genome


alignment
