ELIXIR Beacon Project website

“Beacons” provide discovery services for genomic data in ELIXIR and the Beacon network, using the Beacon technology developed for the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH).

The Beacon protocol defines an open standard for genomics data discovery, developed by members of the Global Alliance for Genomics & Health. It provides a framework for public web services responding to queries against genomic data collections, for instance from population based or disease specific genome repositories.
