ACAS (Assay Capture and Analysis System)
This repository Contains the source code for the main ACAS NodeJS/Web app.
The other required ACAS Open Source Projects can be found here:
JM&Co offer a number of commercial ACAS modules. An introduction to ACAS with additional modules is available [here] (http://www.mcneilco.com/acas.html)
This Open Source release includes the Experiment Loader, Dose Response, and Compound Registration modules, as well as the various ACAS APIs.
- Postgres (or optionally oracle)
Commercial Third-party (optional) requirements
- Compound Registration
- Chemaxon jchembase (with valid license to be obtained at sales [at] chemaxon.com See note in license section of this file)
- Chemaxon marvinjs (with valid license to be obtained at sales [at] chemaxon.com See note in license section of this file)
Docker installation instructions
ACAS has been configured to run a full stack in the docker environment. The instructions below outline the process of getting a basic working stack running on your system.
Some of the docker images in the ACAS stack are available in the mcneilco dockerhub repository while others (due to license restrictions) must be built by the developer.
Images Built by Developer (instructions below):
- ACAS Roo Server
- ACAS Compound Registration Roo Server
Download and install docker for your operating system.
It is recommended to run the stack with at least
4GB of memory but is helpful to have up to
8GB available. Docker for mac and windows do not need to reserve the entire 8GB for itself so it's ok to give it a little extra if you have it available.
See docker instructions for you operating system to adjust
Make a working folder
mkdir -p ~/Documents/mcneilco/oss/
Building a working image for ACAS Roo Server
Due to license restrictions, this is one of the images that must be built by the developer.
cd ~/Documents/mcneilco/oss/ git clone email@example.com:mcneilco/acas-roo-server.git cd acas-roo-server
docker build -t mcneilco/acas-roo-server-oss:latest .
Building a working image for Compound Registration ROO Server
cd ~/Documents/mcneilco/oss/ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:mcneilco/acas-cmpdreg-roo-server.git cd acas-cmpdreg-roo-server
Add chemaxon jar file
- Go to https://www.chemaxon.com
- Login and/or Sign-Up
- Click Download > JChem Suite > JChem
- Scroll down to Archives and select 188.8.131.52, click Get Archive
- Download jchem-merged-lib-184.108.40.206.zip
- Unzip it and rename jchem.jar to jchem-220.127.116.11.jar
Add chemaxon jar file to a lib folder in the checkout
cd ~/Documents/mcneilco/oss/acas-cmpdreg-roo-server mkdir lib cd lib cp <jchem-18.104.22.168.jar> . cd ..
docker build -t mcneilco/acas-cmpdreg-roo-server-oss:latest .
The acas repository contains a docker-compose.yml file that orchestrates the creation of the ACAS stack. For this reason, it is helpful to have a clone of the ACAS repo even if you aren't doing ACAS development or don't need compound registration.
cd ~/Documents/mcneilco/oss/ git clone email@example.com:mcneilco/acas.git cd acas
Add chemaxon licenses and download marvin4js
mkdir -p chemaxon/licenses
Place your marvin4js-license.cxl and license.cxl (jchem base license) as follows:
cp <path/to/marvin4js-license.cxl> chemaxon/licenses cp <path/to/license.cxl> chemaxon/licenses
Place your marvin4js download into a folder called "marvinjs" as follows:
cp -r <path/to/marvinjs-16.10.17-all> chemaxon/marvinjs
Start acas stack
cd ~/Documents/mcneilco/oss/acas docker-compose up -d
docker-compose logs --tail=20 -f <service>
e.g. for all containers
docker-compose logs --tail=20 -f
e.g. for only tomcat
docker-compose logs --tail=20 -f tomcat
- There is a known timing issue where tomcat may try to connect to the database before the database is accepting connections. If this happens, try restarting tomcat.
docker-compose restart tomcat
