Convert New York University specimen tables to ERNE cache database format
This is a converter. It takes specimen records from New York University Medical School (NYU)’s cancer research specimen collection that are stored as a series of spreadsheets. From those, it outputs a series of SQL statements that can be injected into the cache system of the Early Detection Research Network (EDRN) Resource Network Exchange (ERNE).
That lets the EDRN public portal show the specimens collected at NYU, without requiring an ERNE server to be installed at NYU.
This package has no external requirements (aside from Python >=2.4 <3.0).
pip install edrn.nyuxls2erne
The software as well as its dependencies will be downloaded and installed automatically.
If neither pip nor easy_install are available on your system, just install from source:
- Download the source package archive.
- Extract the gzip’d tar archive.
- In the extracted directory, run python setup.py install as a privileged user.
