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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code 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.
