Repackaging a bioinformatics web service.
A bioinformatics web service that was developed by a bioinformatics PhD  student at Rhodes University is complex to deploy, distribute and scale up. The services is used for motif evaluation and ranking and id dependent on various dependencies with Python, R and Bioconda being part of them.

Providing a easier way of deploying and  distributing the application as well as long term continuous support is what motivated us to repackage the application using Docker. Docker eliminates the problem of having to install dependencies or create a working environment every time you deploy the service. 
This is achieved through creating an image that contains all what is needed to run the application including the dependencies that are needed for an application to run.
