eke.knowledge 1.0.8

EDRN Knowledge Environment

Latest Version: 1.0.9

This product, eke.knowledge, provides the basis for the Early Detection Research Network (EDRN) Knowledge Environment (EKE). EDRN uses the EKE to make it easy to discover, share, search for, and retrieve all of EDRN’s collective knowledge, including cancers and other diseases, biomarkers, publications, specimens, investigators, participants, studies, protocols, and even more.

Although intended for the EDRN public portal, it can be installed in any Plone compatible site.

This software is developed by the EDRN Informatics Center at JPL, operated by the California Institute of Technology, for NCI.


Use Buildout with the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe.

  • Add eke.knowledge to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    eggs =
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    % ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package’s configure.zcml file.
