Here are some of the exciting things that have been happening in the InterMine community recently:
- InterMineR: GSoC student Konstantinos has been updating our R client, InterMineR, which is now ready for early testing and feedback. Download and install via dev tools!
- Similarity Project: Samyadeep’s GSoC work identifying similarities between objects in InterMine has produced an intriguing early graph: https://github.com/intermine/similarity/blob/master/intermine.pdf (also, who knew pdfs could be animated?)
- InterMine iOS app: Everyone who added their name to our iOS testing sign-up form should have gotten an email from GSoC student Nadia telling you to sign up to Hockey, the third-party application we’re using to distribute test builds. After you install Hockey and add your device ID, you’ll get an email notifying you when there’s a new test build available. You can submit any feedback via Hockey, or create a ticket in the repo. (github repo)
- InterMine Registry: Leonardo’s GSoC project has an early endpoint up that can be examined – check it out here: https://intermine-registry.herokuapp.com/registry/api-docs/ – how did we manage without a registry for so long? 😅 (github repo)
- Neo4j: GSoC student Yash Sharma has shared a nice blog post about structuring InterMine metadata in Neo4j. (InterMine neo4j github repo)
- Python cookbook: Like we mentioned in a previous post, Samarth has been creating a set of InterMine python tutorials. Tutorial 3 on filtering and constraints has just been published.
- Fly correlation webapp: Basheer set up this Fly correlation webapp which takes a Drosophila gene and retrieves a list of correlated genes based on gene properties. (github repo)
Thanks to everyone who has contributed including students and their mentors. You guys are awesome!
