Query-based histograms

Direct generation of histogram plots from Beacon queries


So far, the plot API only provided (documented) access to generate CNV histogram plots from "collations" with pre-computed frequencies. The bycon API now offers a direct access to the histograms, by adding &output=histoplot to a Beacon (biosamples) query URL. The server will first query the samples and then perform a handover to the plotting API. Please be aware that this procedure is best suited for limited queries and may lead to a time-out.
