# OmaDB: R wrapper for the OMA REST API
R package providing access to the data in the OMA browser, using the REST API. As such, it requires a stable internet connection to operate. We also provide a similar _wrapper for python (https://github.com/DessimozLab/pyOmaDB)_.
An notebook containing examples of how to use the package is available <a href="https://github.com/DessimozLab/omadb/blob/master/manuscript_examples.ipynb">here</a>.
