I am trying to collect data on mutations from Exac without using the web browser aka. using an API to query the EXAC database and return data (like ensembl) Specifically, I want to be able to put in a chr location/variant and gather information on population frequencies, transcript, annotation etc. Not concerned with read data. (eg) http://exac.broadinstitute.org/variant/7-143087637-C-T.
This seems like it's just the source code for the Exac browser you use online as it has to run a local database server. It doesn't look like there's an API for making queries directly to the site, but is it possible to just download the database locally and run queries on it that way? I also am able to download the raw data via:
Not sure how to analyze this data however.
Open to any suggestions. Thanks
