Move GN Racket Rest API to GNU Guile

Currently, gene aliases retrieval relies on querying the outdated GN3 Rest Server written in Racket:

For example, using CURL:

curl https://genenetwork.org/gn3/gene/aliases/Nr3c1

Notable, the same request fails in CD:

curl https://cd.genenetwork.org/gn3/gene/aliases/Nr3c1

The issue arises from the old, unmaintained service running on tux01 with the following Nginx configuration:

      location /gn3 {
	      rewrite /gn3/(.*) /$1 break;
	      proxy_redirect    off;
	      proxy_set_header  Host $host;

The suggested action is to migrate this setup to the GNU Guile codebase for improved maintenance and compatibility.
