GECCO requires additional libraries that can be installed directly from PyPI, the Python Package Index. Contrary to other tools in the field (such as DeepBGC or AntiSMASH), it does not require any external binary.

Installing GECCO locally


The GECCO source is hosted on the EMBL Git server and mirrored on GitHub, but the easiest way to install it is to download the latest release from PyPi with pip.

$ pip install gecco-tool


GECCO is also available as a recipe in the Bioconda channel. To install, simply use the conda installer:

$ conda install -c bioconda GECCO

Using GECCO in Galaxy

GECCO is available as a Galaxy tool in the Toolshed. It can be used directly on the Galaxy Europe server. To add it to your local Galaxy server, get in touch with the admin and ask them to add the Toolshed repository for GECCO to the server tools.
