# How can I run the fdnadist command from the EMBOSS package?

My operating system is Mac OS X.

I would like to compute DNA distances between different sequences. For this, the dnadist package from the Phylip software would be good but hard to automate. EMBOSS seems to have an fdnadist command for this. I have installed emboss version 6.6.0 from the bioconda package but if I type fdnadist, the command is not found. How can I use dnadist or fdnadist on the command line?

To find emboss packages type wossname, then hit enter twice. You will see all the programs. There is one called distmat. Then do tfm distmat, to get the fkn manual for distmat.
