I would like to develop a small scale genomic portal that will (1) accept requests from the user; (2) search several tables of data (currently in the csv format); (3) perform computations in R; (4) output the result in the form of graphs.
This web app will be running on a remote web server (not my local machine) and it should be robust enough that could manage several user requests without breaking... The cBioPortal website http://www.cbioportal.org/public-portal/ is doing something very similar to what I need (but mine is in a much smaller scale)..
I know a lot of Python and R, but I have no idea where to start. I don't know any MySQL but I am willing to give it a go if I need.. Just not sure where to start. Any suggestions?
