MyGene.info v2 API goes live!

We are happy to announce that the MyGene.info Version 2 Application Programming Interface (API) is now live. In the v2 API, we have rebuilt the core framework, which increases both data capacity and query performance significantly. For those who are unfamiliar, MyGene.info provides simple-to-use REST web services to query/retrieve gene annotation data. It’s designed...

Sequenced genomes per year

As part of building the case for creating our proposed CMOD resource, we wanted to know just how quickly the number of sequenced genomes was increasing. The thinking is that the more genomes are being sequenced, the more genomes there are that are going with virtually no community bioinformatics support. write college essays for money There are two sources of release dates for sequenced genomes...

Molecular Predictor Repository? (not gene set repository)

I have a simple question.  Say that I have the results from a gene expression analysis done in my laboratory or pulled from a public repository.  Say the sample has something to do with cancer (or I think that it might).  Say I read about so called 'signatures' that have been found to be associated with key phenotypes related to cancer.  (Here is a list of 13...

Autocomplete widget for gene query

Bioinformatics web developers often face one common problem — adding a search box that allows users to type a gene, which then directs them to a gene-specific resource page. To implement this feature, developers need to maintain a gene annotation database of their own, and then write the interface to link the user input to the backend query. Moreover, they also need to keep their gene...
