Integrative Genome Viewer container
Full Description


Integrative Genome Viewer in a docker container

This image was made to run on OSX 10.10 (Yosemite). You can do the following to work properly assuming you already have docker and boot2docker:

  1. Install Homebrew
  2. brew doctor (just in case) && brew install docker (if you don't have it install yet)
  3. brew install caskroom/cask/brew-cask socat
  4. brew cask install XQuartz

Pull the image: docker pull thephilross/igv

Then run: socat TCP-LISTEN:6000,reuseaddr,fork UNIX-CLIENT:\"$DISPLAY\"

And then: docker run -e DISPLAY= thephilross/igv

Only issue is that it's super slow...I'm not sure if that's due to IGV or because I'm running a container inside a VM which is being run on OSX. But it's still cool...
