LinkDB API

This is a brief specification document for the REST-style GenomeNet LinkDB API.

[ GenomeNet | Chemical Tools API | Genome Tools API | LinkDB API | DBGET API ]

Linked entries via LinkDB

Operation

link – find related entries by using database cross-references

URL form

http://rest.genome.jp/link[/<target_db>]/<dbentries>[/<options>]
http://rest.genome.jp/link/<target_db>/<source_db>[/<options>]

<dbentries> = <dbentry>[+<dbentries>]
<dbentry> = a database entry involved in the databases listed in the URI prefixes
<target_db> = <database>
<source_db> = <database>
<database> = a database listed in the URI prefixes
<option> = original | reverse | indirect | equivalent | turtle | n-triple | nouniq

Note

Database name "genes" may be used as <target_db> of the first form.
A database name in the <dbentry> can be omitted for KEGG object identifiers.
The second form can be used to obtain all to all links between two databases.

Examples

/link/hsa:126+hsa:127    All entries linked from the specified human genes
/link/path/C00077+D00076    KEGG pathways linked from COMPOUND and DRUG entries
/link/genes/C00077+D00076    KEGG GENES linked from COMPOUND and DRUG entries
/link/ncbi-proteinid/hsa:126+hsa:127    NCBI-ProteinIDs linked from human genes
/link/ncbi-proteinid/hsa:126+hsa:127/equivalent/n-triple    Equivalent NCBI-ProteinIDs linked from human genes as N-triple format
  
/link/ncbi-proteinid/hsa    NCBI-ProteinIDs linked from each of the human genes
/link/hsa/ncbi-proteinid
