We’re in to the final stretch of the three month Google Summer of Code period, and results are coming through thick and fast.
On August the 17th at 5PM UK time (you can check when it is in your local timezone) we’ll be doing short presentations for each of the projects as part of our community call – around 5 minutes per project. Come join in and see the great work our students have been doing!
Here’s a quick summary of projects to date:
InterMine Registry: The registry is up and running! You can view all known instances of InterMine in the registry front end, or browse the API docs to learn more about programmatic access. Tip: like the logos you see? Add yours with these handy tips from Julie in an earlier post.
Leonardo also wrote a great blog post about his work on the registry.
InterMine iOS app: Several members of the InterMine community signed up to provide beta testing while the app was under development. Nadia’s been doing some great work on this – users can now use keyword search across multiple InterMines, browse templates, lists, and create sets of “favourite” InterMine objects – perhaps building up a literature search for future use. It also loads its mine list straight from the registry! Expect it in the app store soon.
Similarity Project: Samyadeep wrote up an in-depth technical project on the InterMine object similarity engine he’s been working on, using FlyMine sample data in Neo4J.
Neo4j: Yash will be demoing his InterMine Query <—>Cypher work on the call, or in the meantime, you can check out his blog posts on the subject.
R: Konstantinos updated our InterMine R client library to include new features such as enrichment visualisation – expect a blog post about it soon! It’s under review in Bioconductor but you can use the library now directly from GitHub.
