The service maintains an ontology of terms describing concepts important in genetic research and related biological science. It's structure defines standard language for concepts from the topic domain, with annotations describing the meanings and proper uses of the terms. This standardization of language use encourages consistent treatment and discussion across genetic research efforts.
API methods support access to the ontology's list of standard terms for proteins and descriptive properties, with annotations about correct usage and taxonomic relationships between terms, including those with broader meanings, narrower meanings, and related usage. Methods allow control of the scope of a result set depending on an application's need for complete or streamlined 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.
