Cellosaurus STR Similarity Search Tool

Build

The project can be built as a WAR file from the webapp repository using the following Maven command:

mvn compile war:war

Note that the backend has first to be installed from the backend repository using the following Maven command:

mvn install

Deployment

Place the built WAR file in the tomcat/webapps directory.

Update

When a new Cellosaurus version is released, the Tomcat webapp has to be restarted for the additions and changes to be integrated. Note that the tool uses the Cellosaurus FTP as source and the corresponding files need to be updated prior to the restart.

To make sure the STR Similarity Search Tool uses the latest Cellosaurus version, the following GET method can be used: https://web.expasy.org/cellosaurus-str-search/api/database

Help

Help can be accessed on the STR Similarity Search Tool help page.
