GeneNetwork

This repository contains the source code for the GeneNetwork (GN) server http://gn2.genenetwork.org/ (version 2 aka GN2). GN is a Web 2.0 style framework with included tools for doing genetics online using high-throughput data. GN is used for a wide range of studies. An exhaustive list of publications mentioning GN and its previous incarnation WebQTL can be found here.

Install

The recommended installation is with GNU Guix which allows you to deploy GN2 and dependencies as a self contained unit on any machine. The database can be run separately as well as the source tree (for developers). See the installation docs.

Test

Once installed GN2 can be run online through a browser interface

./bin/genenetwork2

(default is http://localhost:5003/). We are building up automated testing using mechanize which can be run with

./bin/test-website

Documentation

User documentation can be found here. The architecture of the software stack is described here. The database schema is (still) shared with GN1 and currently described here. Software documentation is being expanded in the source code repository.

Contributing

Issues can be raised through github.

Contribute to GN2 source code by forking the github repository with git and sending us pull requests.

For development GN2 has a mailing list and an active IRC channel #genenetwork on freenode.net with a web interface.
