OmaDB: R wrapper for the OMA REST API
R package providing access to the data in the OMA browser, using the REST API. As such, it requires a stable internet connection to operate. We also provide a similar wrapper for python (https://github.com/DessimozLab/pyOmaDB).
An notebook containing examples of how to use the package is available here.
If you use our package in your work, please consider citing:

The package is available via Bioconductor (https://bioconductor.org) and can be installed as follows:
if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager")) install.packages("BiocManager") BiocManager::install('OmaDB') #load the package library(OmaDB)
Note that the v2.0 of the package requires R version >= 3.6 and Bioconductor version >=3.9. At the time of writting this, this is the Bioconductor development version and so the package can be installed as follows:
BiocManager::install('OmaDB', version = 'devel')
Alternatively, the latest version of the OmaDB package can also be directly installed from the github repository as below:
install.packages('devtools') library(devtools) install_github('dessimozlab/omadb')
