In this lecture, Andrew Cowley (Bioinformatics Trainer, External Services) provides an overview of EMBL-EBI's web services, and shows examples of their use.
Data resources covered in this lecture
- Web Services: software systems designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network. To ensure that software systems from different sources work well together, they are built using open standards such as SOAP.
- Ideal for large-scale or repetitive analyses.
- Remotely run your tasks on EMBL-EBI's servers and data through programmatic access.
