MOLGENIS is an collaborative open source project on a mission to generate great software infrastructure for life science research. Each app in the MOLGENIS family comes with rich data management interface and plug-in integration of analysis tools in R, Java and web services.

Developing your own

Generate generate your own in three steps:

  1. Clone the MOLGENIS generator and an empty distro

    git clone git clone cd molgenis_distro

  2. Model what you want for your experiment in a simple XML file example db, example ui molgenis_db.xml molgenis_ui.xml

  3. Run the MOLGENIS generator, after that you're able to use your web application.
