Project description

Toolchest Python Client

Toolchest runs computational biology software in the cloud with just a few lines of code. You can call Toolchest from anywhere Python or R runs, using input files located on your computer or S3.

This package contains the Python client for using Toolchest. For the R client, see here.

Documentation & User Guide


The Toolchest client is available on PyPI:

Using a tool in Toolchest is as simple as:
