The ProThesaurus (Protein Thesaurus) API has two parts; a Biological Mark-up Service and a Biological Name Service. The Biological Mark-up Service scans text for the names or identifiers of biological objects (e.g. proteins) and marks any hits. The Biological Name Service identifies a biological object and provides its name, database identifiers, and other frequently used synonyms.
BeThesaurus (Beta Thesaurus) is an extension of ProThesaurus that allows users to propose their own names and identifiers for biological objects.
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.
