The GA4GH Beacon Specification is a web service for genetic data sharing that can be queried for information about specific alleles. It enables the secure sharing of genomic data from participants of genomic studies using Beacons web-servers that answer questions to which the Beacon must respond with yes or no, without referring to a specific individual. “Beacons” provide discovery services for genomic data in ELIXIR and the Beacon network, using the Beacon technology developed for the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH). The Beacon protocol defines an open standard for genomics data discovery, that provides a framework for public web services responding to queries against genomic data collections. Global Alliance for Genomics and Health provides responsible, voluntary and secure services for sharing of genomic & clinical data.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
