GUIdock: Using Docker containers with a common graphics user interface to address the reproducibility of research

GUIdock is a Docker Package containing the entire computational environment to run applications with a graphical user interface. As a proof of concept, we focus on supporting Cytoscape, a Java-based standalone program with a graphical user interface for the visualization and analyses of gene networks in biology. In addition to Cytoscape, our container includes R, Rserve, Bioconductor packages igraph, networkBMA and a Cytoscape app called CyNetworkBMA. GUIdock contains the entire pipeline and all the tools (including Cytoscape that connects to preloaded RServe, a Bioconductor package called “networkBMA” and all its dependencies) to generate gene regulatory networks.

Docker file for biodepot/GUIdock (Docker Hub Page)

Source code, installation and running script, and Dockerfile available at: https://github.com/BioDepot/GUIdock

The package contains: Cytoscape, R, with Bioconductor packages (igraph, Rserve, and networkBMA).
