Ensembl service

The Ensembl service allows the Grassroots Server to use the functionality provided by the Ensembl REST API. Currently only the ability to search for sequences by identifier is implemented.


To build this service, you need the grassroots core and grassroots build config installed and configured.

The files to build the Ensembl service are in the build/<platform> directory.


If you enter this directory

cd build/linux

you can then build the service by typing

make all

and then

make install

to install the service into the Grassroots system where it will be available for use immediately.
