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.
bycon API now offers a direct access to the histograms, by adding
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.
Example (some loading time)¶
- a search for samples with focal deletion in the CDKN2A locus, limited to glioblastoma cell lines
Please see the dociumentation in Use Cases.
