I’ve said this before, but I’ll proudly say it again: one of the greatest things about being open source is the community. People are continually creative and resourceful with the tools we’ve built, and we love seeing all the different things you guys do with InterMine. Here’s a quick roundup of some of the things we’ve seen so far this year:
TargetMine’s Auxiliary Toolkit
The Beany Mines:
R and SOLR
Ever wondered what Model Organism Linked Data might look like? MOLD includes a queryable SPARQL endpoint and draws from multiple different InterMines to create a single dataset.
Tip: Make it generic
Generic tools are ones that aren’t hard-coded to a specific Mine or model. We’re always on the look out for new and exciting features, whether it’s a visualisation or a web service or a database tweak. If you think it’s good, you can email us to discuss it or simply create a pull request, and bask in glory forever after.
We’d love to see more!
This list is awesome (thanks everyone!!) but by no means conclusive. If you think we’ve missed something out, or you’re doing something new at the moment, drop us a line and we’ll add you to the next round up. We’d also love to hear from others who might be interested in guest-blogging an InterMine related feature.
