Bycon - a Python-based environment for the Beacon v2 genomics API

The bycon project provides a combination of a Beacon-protocol based API with additional API services, used as backend and middleware for the Progenetix resource.

bycon has been developed to support Beacon protocol development following earlier implementations of Beacon+ (“beaconPlus”) with now deprected Perl libraries. The work tightly integrates with the ELIXIR Beacon project.
