Built-in Beacon functionality for Cafe Variome installations

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 10:38:41 UTC

As members of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health coalition (GA4GH) ‘Beacon’ task force, we have made Cafe Variome systems able to optionally offer a Beacon web-service that queries for (and hence discovers) the existing of records pertaining to any specific variant allele at a specific genome position. This integrated Beacon service can be switched on or off through the administrator dashboard.
