The Allen Institute for Brain Science, a non-profit medical research organization in Seattle, Washington, worked for several years to build a map of gene expression in the human brain. It released a Mouse Brain Atlas in 2007, then used similar techniques to complete its Human Brain Atlas in 2010. Last week, at its first hackathon, the Institute launched an API for the Human Brain Atlas, allowing researchers all over the world direct access to that information.
Our API directory now includes 72 medical APIs. The newest is the pVerify API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the Avvo API. We list 2 Avvo mashups. Below you'll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of medical APIs.
Lemonade has launched its public API which opens its insurance platform to developers. The API will initially provide access to the company’s renters, condo, and homeowners insurance products, and the company plans on expanding the API to include other insurance products in the future.
