Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC)

We have provided a RESTful service to extend the Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC) Browser created at the Broad Institute. The ExAC Browser queries genomic information on over 60,000 individuals who were sequenced through a variety of disease-specific and population genetic studies. Our ExAC RESTful API enables a user to integrate ExAC services into their own tools, querying the variant information and returning the data in an easy to use JSON format

CDC National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey

The CDC's National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) provides health metrics on a large and representative sample of the United States population from 1999 to 2012, including physiological and clinical parameters (e.g., serum cholesterol, glucose), personal environmental biomarkers (e.g., blood mercury and infectious agents), physiological characteristics (e.g., head circumference), and self-reported behaviors (e.g., diet, physical activity). However, these valuable data collections have been difficult to download, query, analyze, and integrate with other datasets....

NIH/NCATS Global Rare Diseases Patient Registry Data Repository (GRDR®)

This is a web-based resource that aggregates, secures, and stores deidentified patient information from 12 different registries for rare diseases (5,277 patients with 178 different rare dieseases) all in one place. This platform allows for the wider dissemination of data collected by individual rare disease registries as well as the increased accessibility of data for researchers conducting intra-registry and cross-registry queries in the genesis of hypotheses for potential study. It uses the BD2K PIC-SURE RESTful API international ontologies for semantic interoperability, mappings to...
