Create a new environment and install all the packages listed above using the environment.yml file (see additional documentation about conda here).
$ conda env create -f environment.yml
Activate new environment (you should see a change in the prompt)
$ source activate bigscape(bigscape) $
Prepare the Pfam database
For simplicity, it will be put in the same BiG-SCAPE folder but it can be located elsewhere. BiG-SCAPE has been tested with versions 31 and 32, and newer versions should work fine. Note that in this example, version 32 is used. Browse the different versions here.:
To deactivate the environment do source deactivate.
⚪ Docker (Linux-like systems)
If you use Docker, copy the run_bigscape file from the repository and run it like so:
$ mkdir ~/bin # not required if you already have that$ curl -q https://git.wageningenur.nl/medema-group/BiG-SCAPE/raw/master/run_bigscape > ~/bin/run_bigscape$ chmod a+x ~/bin/run_bigscape$ ~/bin/run_bigscape
If you don't (or can't) use conda, you will need to download all the files from the repository (e.g. from here), download and prepare the Pfam database (see above) and have the following packages installed in your system:
Python (BiG-SCAPE development will focus on Python 3. We will try to keep compatibility with Python 2 as long as we can)
