Bycon Services

The bycon environment provides a number of data services which make use of resources in the Progenetix environment. Please refer to their specific documentation.

Note: As of 2021-04-07 there are some changes - typical Beacon endpoints such as biosamples have been moved to the /beacon/__service-name__ path:

services.py and URL Mapping

The service URL format progenetix.org/services/__service-name__?parameter=value is a shorthand for progenetix.org/cgi-bin/bycon/services/__service-name__.py?parameter=value.

The services application deparses a request URI and calls the respective script.

Response formats

Standard responses are provided as Content-Type: application/json. The wrapper format for JSON encoded data follows the standard Beacon response format where the main data is contained in the response.results array.

For more information see the beaconresponse json documentation.
