The service provides a modeling environment for assembling and combining BioBricks, which are standardized packages of genetic patterns encoded to generate discrete biological functions. In combination, they define biological sequences that in turn can be treated as larger functional components for combination to model complex processes. The resulting protocols effectively apply engineering principles to standardize representations of biological systems.
API methods support encoding basic biological structures with genetic characteristics, relationships to antibiotics, and other characteristics. Methods also allow combination of basic structures according to the same standard principles to define progressively more complex structural components.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
