MyVariant.py: our Python client for MyVariant.info services

We are happy to announce that the official Python client ("MyVariant.py") for our MyVariant.info web services is now available from PyPI (the Python Package Index). MyVariant.py allows users to annotate or query for human variants, either a single variant or a list of variants, without making explicit GET or POST web service calls. This is especially convenient for users who are already handling...

MyGene.info added mm9 support for mouse genes

The default genomic locations of mouse genes from MyGene.info are always based on the current genome assembly of GRCm38 (or mm10). Although mm10 has been released in early 2012, there are still needs today to query gene annotations based on GRCm37 (or mm9), the previous mouse genome assembly, in order to handle some legacy data. Just like what we did for human genes a while ago, supporting hg19...

New API for species data

Last week, we released a new feature to support querying genes beyond the species level, at levels of genus, family,…,phylum. As a companion of this new feature, we have now added a new API for developers to get the species data programatically: GET http://mygene.info/v2/species/<taxid> This API is simple. Here is a example: request: GET http://mygene.info/v2/species/9606 response:...

Query genes beyond species, at levels of genus, family,…,phylum

In a typical MyGene.info query, you can query genes for one or multiple species by providing a "species" parameter: http://mygene.info/v2/query?q=cdk2&species=human http://mygene.info/v2/query?q=cdk2&species=9606,10090 MyGene.info now allows you to query genes at the level beyond species, that is, you can now query for matching genes for any given genus, family, or even phylum from the...
