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
$ pip install gecco-tool
$ 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.
