dbfetch

By | September 22, 2011

Dbfetch is an acronym for “database fetch”. Dbfetch provides an easy way to retrieve entries from various databases available at EMBL-EBI in a consistent manner. It can be used from any browser, via a web-aware scripting tool (e.g. curl, lynx, elinks or wget) or using an HTTP client library (e.g. Perl LWP, Java HttpClient, Python urllib, etc.).

Dbfetch provides extensive meta-information describing the available databases and data formats, including semantic annotations using the EMBRACE Data and Methods (EDAM) ontology (http://edamontology.sourceforge.net/), details of commonly used aliases for databases and data formats and entry identifier examples for each database.
