A collection of modules for executing MVP Workflows

Project description

NCATS Translator mvp-module-library

The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) is funding a project called "Translator" to develop cyberinfrastructure for biomedical knowledge integration.

One key objective is to develop a platform for specifying and running computational workflows connecting diverse biomedical data types (diseases, genes, drugs) with one another, to identify novel therapeutic options for the treatment of various medical conditions. Contributing to this goal is a set of bioinformatics modules which serve as building blocks for such workflows. Some of these modules are aggregated and published in this package, for reuse in the project's "minimal viable product" application(s).


This package is published on PyPI ( and can be installed using pip:

pip install mvp-module-library

As always, it's useful to have a separate Python virtual environment for your project:

virtualenv -p python3.6 venv
source venv/bin/activate
pip install mvp-module-library

Usage Example

>>> from pprint import pprint
>>> from biolink_api.biolink_client import BioLinkApiWrapper
>>> b = BioLinkApiWrapper()
>>> pprint(b.get_obj('MONDO:0005148'))
