GenomeQuest introduced a comprehensive Application Programming Interface (API) to its sequence data management (SDM) platform, offering life science organizations a cloud-enabled solution for researchers and developers to manage sequence data.
The GenomeQuest platform allows researchers to compare, mine, share, and aggregate their sequence data, annotations, and findings—all from a web-browser and while accessing the world’s largest collection of sequence reference databases. With the new API, bioinformatics developers and computational biologists can configure and customize their SDM to support research and clinical workflows on top of the GenomeQuest Engine. Researchers also can unify and cloud-enable their SDM across all users, instruments, tools, databases, projects, and organizations. In addition, they can scale their SDM to large-scale workflows—including broad-based support of next generation sequencing and secure, cloud-level sharing of sequence data and results.
The new GenomeQuest API provides full access to and control of the full range of SDM services, including engine-level sequence comparisons, workflow-level configuration/customization, and cloud-level administration and sharing.
The cloud-level support from the API provides developers with all the services they need—including computing, user/group administration, and data storage, sharing and security—to innovate on the cloud and securely publish workflows and applications to extended communities.
