Hi Daniel,


Were you able to get your data into your mine? In your last email you 
said you were having problems with the InterMine FASTA data source.

Do you have the error messages? Or were you able to get it to work?


It seems like you want to query your mine for sequence data then do some 
further manipulation with a script. Is that right?

Here's our documentation on the web service call you can do to retrieve 
sequence information:


That example is querying flymine, but you can just replace FlyMine with 
your local InterMine and the query will work. Provided you've loaded 
sequence information successfully.

So I would think you would use Perl/Python/Whatever to run that query, 
get your sequence data, do whatever manipulation is needed - then write 
the results to a file.

Does that sound sensible? Was that what you had in mind?
