tranSMART is a knowledge management platform that enables scientists to develop and refine research hypotheses by investigating correlations between genetic and phenotypic data, and assessing their analytical results in the context of published literature and other work.
Some pre-requisites are required in order to run tranSMART. For development, a copy of grails is needed in order to run the application. For production or evaluation purposes, it is sufficient to download a pre-build WAR file, for instance a snapshot from the The Hyveʼs or tranSMART Foundationʼs CI/build servers, for snapshots of The Hyveʼs or tranSMART Foundationʼs GitHub repositories, respectively. In order to run the WAR, an application server is required. The only supported one is Tomcat, either from the 6.x or 7.x line, though it will most likely work on others.
In addition, a PostgreSQL database installed with the proper schema and data is required. As of this moment, The Hyveʼs development branches require this to be propared with the transmart-data repository. This project also handles the required configuration, running the Solr instances and, for development purposes, running an R server and installing sample data.
For details on how to install the tranSMART Foundationʼs versions, refer to their wiki.
