New REST service for fetching Chado XML

Postby Josh Goodman » Mon Jul 07, 2008 3:04 pm

FlyBase has introduced a new REST service for fetching Chado XML data for FlyBase objects (genes, alleles, transcripts, proteins, clones, etc...) using either the primary FlyBase ID or current symbol. The XML data returned contains the majority of the data used to create the web reports. Information not in the XML data include images and gene summary information.

Use this URL construction to fetch by primary ID.

http://flybase.org/chadoxml/id/<FlyBase ID>
e.g.
http://flybase.org/chadoxml/id/FBgn0001325
http://flybase.org/chadoxml/id/FBal0209432
http://flybase.org/chadoxml/id/FBtp0032101
http://flybase.org/chadoxml/id/FBtr0073062

Use this URL construction to fetch by current symbol.

http://flybase.org/chadoxml/symbol/<current symbol>
e.g.
http://flybase.org/chadoxml/symbol/Kr
http://flybase.org/chadoxml/symbol/dro5-PA
http://flybase.org/chadoxml/symbol/GH09576
http://flybase.org/chadoxml/symbol/dro5[GD4871]
http://flybase.org/chadoxml/symbol/P{GD4871}
