Download

To get the latest release of SequenceServer, run the following from a command line.

  gem install sequenceserver

If that doesn't work, try sudo gem instead of gem.

Launch

To configure and launch SequenceServer, run the following from a command line.

  sequenceserver

SequenceServer will automatically guide you through an interactive setup process to help locate or download BLAST+ binaries, ask for the location of FASTA files (or BLAST+ databases), and offer to create BLAST+ databases from FASTA files.

That's it! Open http://localhost:4567/ and start BLAST-ing!
