Supplementary information for Reactome

Installing your own Reactome

If you would like to install a local copy of Reactome to try out some ideas, take a look at: SettingUpReactome.

Don't use the default tarball mentioned in the above document, use this one instead: GKB.tar.gz. It was checked out from the Reactome CVS on the 12th April, 2011.

Points to note about installation:

  1. You will find it easiest to install on Debian or Ubuntu. We can't offer much support or advice for other operating systems.
  2. You are strongly encouraged to use the "cpan -i" command to download Perl modules.
  3. The Javascript portion of the code is in GKB/website/html/entitylevelview.
  4. You will need to set up an Apache server to see the Reactome web pages, and the configuration file for this will need to be modified. It is located in GKB/website/conf.
  5. You should customize GKB/modules/GKB/ to set up the directory structure properly. Make sure that the "$DEFAULT_VIEW_FORMAT" variable is set to "elv".
