mod_bio: Apache modules for Next-Generation sequencing data

Bioinformatics. 2015 Jan 1;31(1):112-3. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btu547. Epub 2014 Sep 4.


Summary: We describe mod_bio, a set of modules for the Apache HTTP server that allows the users to access and query fastq, tabix, fasta and bam files through a Web browser. Those data are made available in plain text, HTML, XML, JSON and JSON-P. A javascript-based genome browser using the JSON-P communication technique is provided as an example of cross-domain Web service.
