This is the development version of cellbaseR; for the stable release version, see cellbaseR.

Querying annotation data from the high performance Cellbase web

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

This R package makes use of the exhaustive RESTful Web service API that has been implemented for the Cellabase database. It enable researchers to query and obtain a wealth of biological information from a single database saving a lot of time. Another benefit is that researchers can easily make queries about different biological topics and link all this information together as all information is integrated.
