Our API directory now includes 101 biology APIs. The newest is the Norwegian Biodiversity Information Centre API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the Global Biodiversity Information Facility API. We list 2 Global Biodiversity Information Facility mashups . Below you'll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of biology APIs.

In terms of the technical details, REST and XML lead the way. There are 52 biology REST APIs and 51 biology SOAP APIs. Our directory lists 82 biology XML APIs and 18 biology JSON APIs.

The most common tags within biology are 96 biology science APIs, 31 biology genetics APIs and 30 biology research APIs.

On the mashup side, we list one biology mashups. We named Photos of Life as mashup of the day in January.
