place the chemesis2.6.tgz file into your genesis-2.4 directory.  I.e., when you downloaded and installed genesis-2.4, it created
after moving chemesis2.6.tgz into genesis-2.4, then
ls genesis-2.4/ shows
chemesis2.6.tgz genesis 
extract the files by typing:
tar -xzf chemesis2.6.tgz
then  "ls genesis-2.4/" shows
chan  chemesis2.6.tgz  chemesisREADME  genesis  Makefile
then type "make" (though you might have to edit the Makefile if you changed the default linux installation in your genesis-2.4 Makefile)
This will create and a few chemesis objects that did not get distributed with genesis2.4.  The most important one is caplas_synchan, which implements a calcium dependent plasticity channel.
