{{ {{{template}}} | name = Tripal | full_name = | status = mature | dev = active | support = active | type = | os_linux = y | os_mac = y | os_unix = y | os_win = y | os_web = y | logo = TripalLogo.jpg | home = | about = Tripal is a web front end for Chado databases, based on the Drupal content management system. Tripal leverages many of the features of Drupal--ability to search and edit content, detail pages for different types of content, customizable page layouts, and so on--to provide users with an intuitive, flexible interface to a database.

Features and advantages of Tripal:

  • Allows rapid development of an online genomic database.
  • Site administrators can add non-biological content to their sites and allow editing of content by non-technical users.
  • Integrates directly with GMOD Chado.
  • Provides visualizations for Chado "modules" such as features, analyses, libraries, stocks, and others.
  • Provides an interface for easy editing/updating of data in Chado.
  • Provides full text and categorical search capabilities for Chado content.
  • Can integrate GMOD tools such as CMap and GBrowse.
  • Integrates with powerful Drupal features like Drupal views and panels
  • Provides fully customizable PHP-based templates to allow users to change the look and feel of their installation
  • Web-based management of Chado (i.e. installation of Chado v1.11 and loading of ontologies)
  • Loaders for GFF3 and FASTA format files.
  • Provides an API to allow for creation of custom extensions by anyone.

For Developers

Tripal provides an API to help developers who wish to create new Tripal extension modules. The API provides common functions for interacting with Chado, Tripal, and for constructing or editing custom templates for a custom look-and-feel. For more information, see the following links:
