Progenetix project Namespace

Since July 2017, the Progenetix project has a registered namespace prefix at EBI’s identifiers.org.

This prefix will gradually be used to implement a REST syntax with stable endpoints for all Progenetix resources (e.g. arraymap.org, cnvar.org …), as well as to guide to our code mapping resources.

Legacy API Documentation

The current implementation of the Progenetix APIs uses 2 URL endpoints:

Legacy API

  • progenetix.org/api/ has been deprecated
    • based on the original Perl libraries
    • stepwise deprecation in favour of services
    • documentation removed

pgx namespace and persistant identifiers

While the pgx prefix had been registered in 2017 with identifiers.org we recently changed the resolver and target mappings on the Progenetix server. This went hand-in-hand with the generation of unique & persistant identifiers for the main data items.

Services: collations

  • Documentation Link
  • Source Link

  • provides access to information about data “subsets” in the Progenetix project databases
    • typically aggregations of samples sharing an ontology code (e.g. NCIT) or external identifier (e.g. PMID)

Services: Cytomapper

cytomapper Service

This script parses either:

  • a properly formatted cytoband annotation (assemblyId, cytoBands)
    • “8”, “9p11q21”, “8q”, “1p12qter”
  • a concatenated chroBases parameter
    • 7:23028447-45000000
    • X:99202660

Services: Genespans

  • Documentation Link
  • Source Link

  • genomic mappings of gene coordinats
  • initially limited to GRCh38 and overall CDS extension
  • responds to (start-anchored) text input of HUGO gene symbols using the geneId parameter
  • returns a list of matching gene objects (see below under Response Formats)
Examples

Services: Geolocations

geolocations

This service provides geographic location mapping for cities above 25’000 inhabitants (~22750 cities), through either:

  • matching of the (start-anchored) name
  • providing GeoJSON compatible parameters:
    • geolongitude
    • geolatitude
    • geodistance
      • optional, in meters; a default of 10’000m (10km) is provided
      • can be used for e.g. retrieving all places (or data from places if used with publication or sample searches) in an approximate region (e.g. for Europe using 2500000 around Heidelberg…)

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.

Progenetix Source Code

With exception of some utility scripts and external dependencies (e.g. MongoDB) the following projects provide the vast majority of the software (from database interaction to website) behind Progenetix and Beacon+.

  • bycon
    • Python based service based on the GA4GH Beacon protocol
    • software powering the Progenetix resource
    • Beacon+ implementation(s) use the same code base
  • progenetix-web
    • website for Progenetix and its Beacon+ implementations
    • provides Beacon interfaces for the bycon server, as well as other Progenetix sevices (e.g. the publications repository)
    • implemented as React / Next.js project
  • PGX
    • a Perl ibrary providing utility functions for Progenetix CNV data
    • used for data transformation, e.g. binning of segmental CNV data
    • main purpose now in providing the various plots (CNV histograms, clusterd CNV profiles, array plots)

Additional Projects

  • schemas
    • Progenetix data schemas
    • represent an accessible/stable version of the schemas used in bycon
  • icdot2uberon
    • mappings between ICD-O 3 topographies and UBERON anatomical sites
  • ICDOntologies
    • mappings between ICD-O 3 morphology / topography pairs and NCIt neoplasm core cancer ontology

Beacon: Biosamples

This endpoint is mostly aimed at providing biosamples handover functionality. However, the app uses the same query processing mechanism as the main byconplus application.

Beacon: Variants

This endpoint is mostly aimed at providing variants Beacon functionality. The app uses the same query processing mechanism as the other bycon applications.

BeaconPlus Changes

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

2021-04-30: Closing in on Beacon v2

As one of the drivers of the Beacon protocol and to drive the Beacon v2 protocol process we have now started the documentation of Beacon v2 endpoints which are supported in Progenetix as part of the implementations-v2 project:
