Description

The Lightweight DAS Server (LDAS) is designed for use by small to medium sites. It is ``lightweight'' in the sense that once all the software is installed, annotations can be loaded and updated using tab-delimited text files. It uses only open source (free) software, and does not require a deep knowledge of database design or of the DAS protocol itself.

This server is capable of serving annotations on up to several million features across eukaryotic genomes. It runs on top of the Mysql database engine, the Apache web server, and the Perl programming language. It is designed to be portable between Unix and Microsoft Windows platforms, although it has only been tested on Unix platforms at the current time
