[Bioperl-l] Fwd: REST APIs for Cipres Web Portal

Some folks may remember that CIPRES (http://www.phylo.org) released  
their portal with access to remote execution of several phylogenetic  
tree reconstruction programs in spring last year.

It took a while but they have now also built a really nice REST-based  
API that makes the service fully programmable instead of screen- 
scraping 5 pages:

http://8ball.sdsc.edu:8888/cipres-web/Home.do (click on REST API)

It should be relatively straightforward to build the equivalent of  
RemoteBlast on top of this. Would anyone be keen to take this on?

communities. When responding in a project-specific way please make  
sure you remove the list that is no longer pertinent.
