DAVID-WS (web ser­vice) has been devel­oped to auto­mate user tasks by pro­vid­ing state­ful web ser­vices to access DAVID pro­gram­mat­i­cal­ly with­out the need for human inter­ac­tions. [1]


DAVID-WS is made state­ful by keep­ing the state-relat­ed input of a user oper­a­tion in a ses­sion con­text that can be accessed by sub­se­quent user oper­a­tions with­in the same ses­sion. Users can add lists, change back­ground pop­u­la­tions, select species and cat­e­gories and reset func­tion­al para­me­ters for data analy­sis, as well as query all tools with­in the same ses­sion and for­mat out­put as desired.
