Status: This page documents data services for version 1 of the Phenoscape KB, available as a legacy resource at http://fish.phenoscape.org. The web-services API for the current version of the KB is documented at http://docs.phenoscapekb.apiary.io/.

This page details the data services that query the Phenoscape OBD database and transfer the retrieved results to the Phenoscape UI. Each service may support multiple media types. The desired media type can be specified by appending ?media=json or similar to the request URL. URI specifications are defined (loosely) using URI Templates.

Phenoscape Knowledgebase data services

These are available at the base URI http://fish.phenoscape.org/OBD-WS.

Timestamp

URI

<BASE URI>/timestamp

This service returns the date on which the Knowledgebase content was refreshed.

Returns

JSON: <javascript> { "refresh_date":"2010-01-09" }

</javascript>

Term info

URI

<BASE URI>/term/{term_id}

This is a generic term info service returning basic properties and relationships of a term, given its ID. The returned relationships are those included in the source ontology for the term, not all links to the term in the Knowledgebase.

Returns

JSON: <javascript> {

   "id": "TAO:0000620",
   "definition": "Endochondral bone that is part of the antero-lateral region of the palate.

Commonly, it articulates with the maxilla anterolaterally and with the ethmoidal region medially. It may also articulate with the dermopalatine ventro-laterally and with the entopterygoid posteriorly. The autopalatine is paired.",

Trogloglanis is shown to possess a distinctive mosaic of relatively primitive and highly derived character states. Many of its features are paralleled in rother troglobitic catfishes, some of its features are paedomorphic. Phylogenetic analysis leads to the following

hypothesis of inter-relationships. Pylodictis and Satan are sister groups, Noturus is monophyletic and is the sister group of Prietella,

the subgenus Amiurus of Ictalurus is monophyletic and is the sister group of Noturus + Prietella + Pylodictis + Satan. In turn this large lineage is the sister group of Trogloglanis. The subgenus Ictalurus is monophyletic and is the sister group of all other living ictalurids. Geological and paleontological data suggest that Trogloglanis could not have evolved in situ before middle Eocene, but that its immediate repigean ancestors evolved by middle Oligocene.",

Autocomplete

URI

<BASE URI>/term/search?text=[input]&name=[true|false]&syn=[true|false]&ontology=[ont1,ont2,...]&type=[type1,type2,...]&limit=[count]

All URI parameters are optional except for text. Default values are name=true, syn=false. The ontology parameter should be a comma-separated list of ontology prefixes to search within (any of tao, go, pato, tto, zfin, pspub). The type parameter should be any of: entity, quality, taxon, gene, pub. If no ontology or type is given, the default is to search all ontologies. The limit parameter limits the number of results to the given integer count.

Gene annotations

URI

<BASE URI>/annotation/gene?query=[url-encoded-json]&sortby=[gene|entity|quality|relatedentity]&limit=[count]&index=[start_index]&desc=[true|false]&postcompositions=[none|structure|simple|semantic]

All URI parameters are optional. If no JSON-formatted query specification is provided, all gene annotations will be returned. The limit parameter limits the number of results to the given integer count. This must be a positive integer. The index parameter can be used for pagination under a given sorting and limit regime. It should be greater than or equal to zero (the default). desc can be used to return the results in descending order (it is false by default). If a value is not provided for sortby, the sort order, limit, and start index are not very useful. The postcompositions parameter is optional, and is "none" by default. Rendering postcompositions should only be requested for a limited number of returned results.

Phenotype query specification

The value of the query parameter should be an annotation query represented as JSON, following this structure (in practice it should be collapsed as far as possible to shorten the URL):

<javascript> {

Gene annotation sources

URI

<BASE URI>/annotation/gene/source?query=[url-encoded-json]&postcompositions=[none|structure|simple|semantic]

A JSON-formatted query specification must be provided. It must contain entries for one annotation, including gene, entity, quality, and optional related entity. While the gene and phenotype entries are lists, this is just for consistency with the query format used in other services - each list should contain only one entry. The postcompositions parameter is optional, and is "none" by default.

The limit parameter limits the number of results to the given integer count. This must be a positive integer. The index parameter can be used for pagination under a given sorting and limit regime. It should be greater than or equal to zero (the default). desc can be used to return the results in descending order (it is false by default). If a value is not provided for sortby, the sort order, limit, and start index are not very useful.

Phenotype query specification

The value of the query parameter should be an annotation query represented as JSON, following this structure (in practice it should be collapsed as far as possible to shorten the URL):

   {
       "id": "TTO:XXXX"
   },

Phenotype facet counts

URI

<BASE URI>/phenotype/facet/{facet}?path=[ids]entity=[entity-id]&quality=[quality-id]&related_entity=[related_entity-id]&taxon=[taxon-id]&gene=[gene-id]&part_of=[true|false]

A facet name of either "entity", "quality", "related_entity", "taxon", or "gene" must be substituted in the URI path. All URI parameters are optional. It is an error to supply query parameter matching the facet name, i.e. for '.../phenotype/facet/entity', do not provide '?entity=xx'. The "path" parameter accepts a comma-separated list of IDs, ordered parent-to-child. The "part_of" parameter affects the entity traversal - the default is "false".

Phenotypic profile match service

URI

<BASE URI>/phenotype/profile?taxon=[taxonID]&query=[url-encoded-json]

The JSON-formatted query specification should contain only a list of phenotypes, and a value for the include_inferred option. The taxon parameter is optional. If included, the results will contain profile match counts for each of the taxon's children. If not provided, the service will return data the highest taxon which has children with different match counts (useful for starting the tree display).

Phenotype query specification

The value of the query parameter should be an annotation query represented as JSON, following this structure (in practice it should be collapsed as far as possible to shorten the URL):

<javascript> {

Phenotypic variation sets service

URI

<BASE URI>/phenotype/variationsets?taxon=[taxonID]&exclude_unannotated=[true|false]&exclude_attribute=[true|false]&query=[url-encoded-json]

The JSON-formatted query specification should contain only a single phenotype. The taxon parameter is optional. If included, the results will contain variation sets for the taxon's children. If not provided, the service will return data for the highest taxon which has children in more than one variation set (useful for starting the tree display). If exclude_unannotated is true, no child taxa without annotations to the given phenotype will be returned. If exclude_attribute is true, annotations to the queried attribute (and no more specific quality) will not be returned.

Alternative usage: if the taxon parameter has the value "suggest", a list of taxa are returned which represent suggested starting points for browsing the taxonomic tree using this service.

Phenotype query specification

The value of the query parameter should be an annotation query represented as JSON, following this structure (in practice it should be collapsed as far as possible to shorten the URL):
