The service provides access to a repository of data collections documenting annotated parts, which are DNA sequences with a single known biological function. Datasets support local research while also promoting consistency across researchers. Datasets are or will be in compliance with the Synthetic Biology Open Language (SBOL) standard.
API methods support retrieval of raw data listing annotated parts, as well as collections encompassing subsets of the total repository. Methods also allow retrieval of DNA sequence constructs and construct designs.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
