Genome Explorer

Build Status Docker Pulls

There are those who wish to view genomes (bo-RING!) and then there are those who wish to explore them.


  • Ruby/Rails
  • Postgres
  • The desire to explore the world of bacterial genomes
  • A computer


# with Ruby 2.1.2 and Bundler
bundle install

bundle exec rake db:setup
bundle exec rackup


Just docker:

docker pull audy/genome-explorer

Using docker-compose:

docker-compose up

First time deployment

If this is your first time exploring genomes, you'll need to migrate the database (after running docker-compose up):

docker-compose run --entrypoint rake web db:migrate


Seeding in Docker is not currently supported due to the dependency on non-open source software (sorry about that). If you send me an email, I will send you a dump of the production postgres database.
