MetaSeek is a data discovery and analysis tool for biological sequencing data.
Providing a rich interactive front-end for exploration of sequencing metadata from the major sequencing data repositories, use MetaSeek to find the right integration of sequences for your analysis, and then access the raw sequencing data.
MetaSeek also provides an API for programmatic access. See the API docs.
How MetaSeek works
MetaSeek scrapes metadata from the sequencing data repositories, cleaning and filling in missing or erroneous metadata, and stores the cleaned and structured metadata in the MetaSeek database. A python flask app serves this metadata to a lightweight, interactive front-end in React.js. For programmatic access, MetaSeek offers a powerful, flexible API.
A Demo: Using MetaSeek to find marine metagenomes in the SRA
spin up your own local build of metaseek
clone the repo
git clone https://github.com/MetaSeek-Sequencing-Data-Discovery/metaseek.git
we recommend creating a virtualenv with python 2 in the server folder
cd server/ virtualenv env_metaseek source env_metaseek/bin/activate
install backend dependencies
pip install -r requirements.txt
start the back end
install front-end dependencies
You also need a global install of gulp, so do that
cd ../client/ npm install npm install --global gulp-cli
launch the app
