Currently in production.
AmiGO 2 is a project to create the next generation of AmiGO--the current official web-based set of tools for searching and browsing the Gene Ontology database.
For an overview of features, please see the overview documentation.
For installation information, please see the installation documentation.
GOlr: The Backend
The most fundamental change from the old AmiGO is the backend containing the Gene Ontology data--the MySQL relational database, has been replaced and is now loaded directly into a Solr document store, dubbed GOlr.
This new backend not only provides the engine for running AmiGO, but can be used by anybody as a web service by itself. More information is available on the GOlr page.
The current version is 'trunk'. It is in active development.
The backend GOlr loading code is available on Google Code, please see the GOlr page for more details.
More detailed instructions on installation are pending, but the front page both both repositories are a great place to start.
There is mailing list for AmiGO 2 development here.
The backend is developed in Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10. It has also been run successfully on Mac OSX 10.7. Given these two, it is expected to run on any fairly well-behaved modern *nix platform.
