This package is for version 3.17 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see cellbaseR.

Querying annotation data from the high performance Cellbase web

Bioconductor version: 3.17

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.
