Stores, processes, explores and shares genomic data. This API implements the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) v0.5.1 API as well as several extensions.
The Google Genomics API supports access via both JSON/REST and gRPC. JSON/REST is more broadly available and is easier for getting started with Google Genomics; it works well for small metadata resources (datasets, variant sets, read group sets) and for browsing small genomic regions for datasets of any size. For performant bulk data access (reads and variants), use gRPC.
