Vaxrank can be installed using pip:

pip install vaxrank

Note: to generate PDF reports, you first need to install wkhtmltopdf, which you can do (on OS X) like so:

brew install Caskroom/cask/wkhtmltopdf


To install Vaxrank for local development, you may do the below:

git clone
conda create -q -n vaxrank-dev-env python=3.5.2 numpy scipy nose pandas pylint
source activate vaxrank-dev-env
pip install -r requirements.txt
pip install .
pyensembl install --release 85 --species human
pyensembl install --release 85 --species mouse

You should run the linter and the test suite as you work on Vaxrank (and these will be run automatically by our continuous integration server up on a PR being made).

nosetests test

The first run of the tests may take a while (8 minutes on a 2016 Macbook Pro) to create the FM index of the proteome, but subsequent tests should take only a few seconds.
