Prerequisites

Java (version 1.6.0_01 and above) is required. Java is available for most plaforms from java.sun.com.

For the complete version of QuickGO, with the full data set, a computer with at least 1GB of RAM and 15GB of disk space is required.

Download

Get both software and data together, ready to go: QuickGO + human subset data.

Or get the resources you need:

  1. QuickGO software containing source code, a war file (tested on Tomcat 5.5) and an executable jar file (using an embedded Jetty webserver)
  2. Data from human subset [~150MB disk space required] or all data [~14GB]

If you don't download data, the software will automatically download the required data from the QuickGO website.

The human subset data consists of manual annotations to proteins recorded for Human in UniProtKB.

Installation

1) Unzip QuickGO zipfile (you can put it on a memory stick if you wish)

2) QuickGO can be started:

  • Windows: run run.bat
  • MacOS X, Linux, etc: run run.sh
  • Others:
    java -Xmx256m -jar QuickGO5.1.jar --config quickgo-config-mini.xml --port 8080 --root /QuickGO --password changeme

The full version can be run by changing the script or the command to refer to quickgo-config.xml. You may need to expand the maximum memory (the -Xmx option on the command line or in scripts) to -Xmx1024m
