BeaconPlus Changes

This page lists changes for the Beacon+ implementation of the “Beacon” genomics API.

2020-10-01: Moving to bycon powered BeaconPlus

We’ve changed the Beacon backend to the bycon code base. The new project’s codebase is accessible through the bycon project. Contributions welcome!

2019-09-30: Using the BeaconAlleleResponses parameter

So far the Beacon+ implementation did not make use of the BeaconAlleleResponses parameter though it is required by the protocol, but instad always interpreted requests as with the ALL parameter.
