Biomart API for Ruby
2009-09-01 08:58:46 GMT
Hi All, How's things going? Just thought i'd let you all know about a pleasant by-product of some of my recent work - I've just packaged up and released a Biomart library/api for Ruby. I was writing a lot of code that queried various marts via the web services and ended up copying around lots of boiler plate code, so it made sense to modularize it. :) It's quite basic for the moment and only does single dataset queries, but it will be quite easy to build upon the base from here. The source is available from github (http://github.com/dazoakley/ biomart), and the docs are on rdoc.info (http://rdoc.info/projects/dazoakley/biomart ). Fingers crossed this might be helpful to others! :) Thanks, Daz -- -- The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is operated by Genome Research Limited, a charity registered in England with number 1021457 and a company registered in England with number 2742969, whose registered office is 215 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BE.
