Welcome to interPopula.
interPopula is a Python API to access the HapMap dataset. interPopula provides integration facilities with both the Python ecology of software (e.g. Biopython and matplotlib) and other relavant human population datasets (e.g. Ensembl and UCSC Known Genes). A set of guidelines and code examples to address possible inconsistencies across heterogeneous data sources is also provided.
In concrete, what is interPopula?
interPopula is available for download (GPL v3 licensed).
CitationIf you use interPopula please cite: interPopula: a Python API to access the HapMap Project dataset, T. Antao, BMC Bioinformatics.
An introductory user guide, cookbook style, is made available. For advanced usage scenarios see database and tool integration below.
The automatically generated documentation serves as reference for the library.
We also recommend inspecting the scripts as they are fully commented and an effort was made to make them as readable as possible.
We also have a Q&A forum.
Database and tool integrationIntegration of different databases and tools can be complex. Issues like code complexity are minor but inconsistencies between databases might produce erroneous results. Several integration guidelines and examples, involving tools and databases, are presented.
Have a look at the screenshot gallery.
