Instructions for integration of CADDSuite into the workflow-system
Galaxy (

In order to install CADDSuite into your Galaxy installation, please to the following:

Let's assume $galaxybase is the base-folder of your Galaxy installation.
If you don't have a galaxy-installation yet, download a version from and follow the installation instructions shown there first.

-- Extract the CADDSuite archive into a new folder $galaxybase/tools/CADDSuite, or extract it somewhere else and create a link named $galaxybase/tools/CADDSuite that points to this destination.

After this, you need to copy a few files that you find in the galaxyconfig/ subfolder of this archive to the destinations specified below:

-- Copy tool_conf.xml and datatypes_conf.xml to $galaxybase if you want to setup your Galaxy instance for exclusive use of CADDSuite, or copy the contents of those files into the files already existing in $galaxybase if you want to keep using tools that came along with the Galaxy installation.

-- Copy, and to $galaxybase/lib/galaxy/datatypes/

-- Add "#import molFiles," to the beginning of the file $galaxybase/lib/galaxy/datatypes/

Last but not least, restart Galaxy.
All CADDSuite tools should now appear in your Galaxy webinterface.
