Short Description
Ubuntu-based image with GET_HOMOLOGUES and GET_PHYLOMARKERS ready to be used.
Full Description

This repository distributes a Docker image with GET_HOMOLOGUES and GET_PHYLOMARKERS ready to use. These tools are developed and maintained by Pablo Vinuesa at CCG-UNAM and Bruno Contreras Moreira at EEAD-CSIC. Please see also our blog post describing this release, and the detailed installation instructions of the Docker environment on your machine and the hands-on-tutorial on running GET_HOMOLOGUES + GET_PHYLOMARKERS within a Docker container.

Installing Docker

See instructions here and here.
In old Windows systems you might have to use Docker Toolbox + VirtualBox.
See here how to run docker without 'sudo' in Linux.

Examples of use

Once Docker is set up, you can run the image by typing this in the terminal:

docker run --rm -it csicunam/get_homologues:latest /bin/bash

This might take a couple of minutes the first time as the image needs to be downloaded. Once the session starts, you will be logged in as user 'you' in directory '/home/you/'. Both software packages are installed at '/get_phylomarkers' and '/get_homologues'. You can check the installed GET_HOMOLOGUES version, and then turn off the image with these commands: -v

In case you need Pfam-A and/or SwissProt with GET_HOMOLOGUES, they can be installed for an open session with:

cd /get_homologues/

IMPORTANT: When the image is shut down any files created will be lost. Hence, input files and results should be stored in a local, persistent folder. This can be achieved by booting the image with a mounted, writable folder containing input genomes or cluster files in FASTA format, as detailed in the tutorial

chmod -R a+w ./data_folder
docker run --rm -v ./data_folder:/data_folder -it csicunam/get_homologues:latest /bin/bash

This data_folder will contain all the results produced while running the image.

Users should read the appropriate manuals (GET_HOMOLOGUES, GET_PHYLOMARKERS) to learn about the analyses that can be performed with these tools.
