The recommended method of installation is through bioconda:

conda install -c bioconda macrel

Install from source

If you want to use an unreleased version from Github, for example, we provide a script using conda (in particular, using bioconda and conda-forge) to install all dependencies in a Macrel-specific environment:

git clone
cd macrel
conda activate envs/Macrel_env

Thereafter, to use macrel, activate this environment.

While Macrel as a whole is GPL v3 licensed (to comply with it being used in some of its dependencies, namely Peptides), the macrel-specific code is also licensed under the MIT license.
