23andMe is a personal genetics service. 23andMe offers individual genome and DNA testing and information.
The 23andMe API allows developers to access and integrate the data from 23andMe with other applications and to create new applications. Individuals consent to giving third-party access to the 23andMe data. Some example API methods include accessing user information, retrieving profiles, and getting information on genotypes.
DNA testing provider 23andMe has informed developers that it will be shuttering its public API in two weeks to focus on apps that use its internal reports. The API was intended to give developers the ability to build apps and tools that took advantage of the company’s genetic data sets.
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.
