Single purpose API
Of the many APIs we published this week, eleven were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eleven, which include the LairOut API. LairOut, in a nutshell, is a web-based event location directory that provides users with information on events happening around their location. All users have to do is enter in a location and date and the site will generate events taking place around that location at or near that date. The API simply makes this functionality available to developers via API calls.
National Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Centers (MMPC) are a group of National Institutes of Health sponsored resources that research diabetes, obesity and other metabolic diseases based in mice. The MMPC has made much of its research and data available through the MMPC API. Developers can pull from the data sets to enhance the research with big data tools and analytics.
