Description

MyGene.info is a web API for accessing gene annotation information (Gene Annotation Query as a Service). MyGene.info is part of BioThings API collection, together with MyVariant.info, MyChem.info and more.

For more information see this reference:

High-performance web services for querying gene and variant annotation. Genome Biol. 2016 May 6;17(1):91. doi: 10.1186/s13059-016-0953-9. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27154141

Setup Mygene.info Web Server Locally

1. Prerequisites

python (>=3.4)
git 

In Ubuntu/Debian system, you can install all prerequisites by

sudo apt-get install python-dev python-setuptools git 

2. Clone this repo:

git clone https://github.com/biothings/mygene.info.git

3. Setup a Python "virtualenv" (optional, but highly recommended):

sudo easy_install pip
sudo pip install virtualenv

virtualenv ~/opt/devpy

4. Install required python modules:

pip install -r ./requirements_web.txt

5. Make your own "config.py" file

cd src
vim config.py

from config_web import *
from config_hub import *
# And additional customizations

6. Run your dev server

python index.py --debug

or

python index.py --debug --port=9000
You can’t perform that action at this time.
