BioThings SDK

A Python-Based Software Development Kit
To Build High-Performance Data APIs

BioThings SDK provides a Python-based toolkit to build high-performance data APIs (or web services) from a single data source or multiple data sources. It has the particular focus on building data APIs for biomedical-related entities, a.k.a “BioThings”, though it’s not necessarily limited to the biomedical scope. For any given “BioThings” type, BioThings SDK helps developers to aggregate annotations from multiple data sources, and expose them as a clean and high-performance web API.

SmartAPI

Register Your Semantically Annotated API
& Discover APIs From Others

The SmartAPI project aims to maximize the FAIRness (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability) of web-based Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Rich metadata is essential to properly describe your API so that it becomes discoverable, connected, and reusable.

BioThings Explorer

Exploring Biological Data
Through Linked API Services

BioThings Explorer is the "Google Maps" for biologists. It utilizes SmartAPI Specifications to build a network of APIs. And by traversing through the network, BioThings Explorer could help user identify potential paths connecting two biological entities through multiple API calls.
