Installation and Setup
Python package and command-line tool
Install from Bioconda
conda install -c bioconda gambit
Install from source
Installing from source requires the
cython package as well as a C compiler be installed on your
system. Clone the repository and navigate to the directory, and then run:
pip install .
Or do an editable development install with:
pip install -e .
You will need a GAMBIT reference database (consisting of one
.gdb and one
.gs file) to
perform taxonomic classification using the
gambit query command. Download files for the latest
database release from the Reference database releases page and place them in a directory of your
choice. The directory should not contain any other files with the same extensions.
