PhenoGen REST API
We are building a REST API to provide access to all public data. Eventually this will also include running most functions available through the website. Keep checking back for new functions.
Domains for Functions Calls:
Functions can be called at either:
https://rest-test.phenogen.org Please note this is a development and testing version of the API. Please do not use this for actual data analysis. Only for development.
https://rest-doc.phenogen.org - temporarily unavailable (as of 6/17/22), but will be available within a few days
All functions should include help as a response if you call the function with this appended to the
?help=Y. The response returns a JSON object with supported methods and then list of parameters
and description of each parameter as well as a list of options if there is a defined list of values.
R methods for the API
We are developing methods to call the REST API from R and to retrieve the data directly from PhenoGen into R. For now this is limited to the datasets at https://phenogen.org/web/sysbio/resources.jsp -> New RNA Sequencing Datasets Experimental Details/Downloads
We will turn this into an R package and release it.
