Single purpose API
A coder using the name “offensive-computing” used 23andMe’s API to access the company’s genetic records to build a tool that blocks users from websites based on genetic makeup.
Of the many APIs we published this week, eight were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eight, which included the up and coming Intuit API. In a nutshell, Intuit will be opening an API to its financial data service in the US and Canada.
23andMe is a DNA analysis service that allows individuals to learn more about their DNA. Users can use the service to trace their ancestry, learn more about their present health and participate in research to benefit future generations. The company also offers this neatly categorized and searchable data to researchers and scientists.
