This repository contains the CellOrganizer Galaxy tools and the instructions on how to install them on your Galaxy instance.


Before you attempt to install the tools make sure to have

  • A working Galaxy instance. Installing Galaxy is beyond the scope of this document. Please refer to the official documentation to install an instance.

  • Matlab. Matlab should be installed in the same machine running Galaxy. Installing Matlab is beyond the scope of this document. Please refer to the official documentation to build an instance.

  • The Matlab binary must be in the $PATH of the user running Galaxy.

    For example

    ~ export PATH=$(PATH):/opt/matlab/bin  
    ~ echo $PATH
    ~ which matlab

Installing CellOrganizer for Galaxy

  • CellOrganizer must be downloaded into the system running Galaxy. Its location should be set in an environment variable called $CELLORGANIZER. The environment variable needs to be accessible to the user running your Galaxy instance. Make sure the user running Galaxy has reading permissions on the CellOrganizer location.

    For example

    ~ chown -R galaxy:galaxy /usr15/galaxy/cellorganizer-galaxy-tools-v2.8.0/cellorganizer3
    ~ export CELLORGANIZER=/usr15/galaxy/cellorganizer-galaxy-tools-v2.8.0/cellorganizer3

    To download CellOrganizer visit the official website. Please make sure the version of CellOrganizer you install matches the version of CellOrganizer for Galaxy.

  • Copy the CellOrganizer tools into the $GALAXY/tools. The variable $GALAXY, as explained in the official documentation, holds the location of your Galaxy instance.
