The biggest value that WattzOn is offering through its WattzOn API is access to its “Embodied Energy Database” (EED). This database seeks to detail the amount of energy required to manufacture, transport, use, and dispose of all our stuff. The idea is that if we knew the embodied energy in all the items we use, we could make better consumption choices, avoiding those items with unexpectedly high embodied energy.
The Illumina Basepace API is a key stepping stone to simplifying genomics software development by third parties with a platform as a service. The API allows you to build for any platform, web, desktop, or "Native apps." Illumina offers whole-genome sequencing, individual genome sequencing, and with Basespace offers processing, storage and apps sold by third party vendors.
