Data repository service¶
The SeqsLab RESTful API implements the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) Data Repository Service (DRS) specification v1.0. The DRS API was developed by GA4GH to address the need for a standardized set of access methods that are agnostic to cloud infrastructure. This means that even if workflows are stored in different locations using several workflow languages, and with varying dependencies, you can reliably run these workflows on SeqsLab.
The SeqsLab DRS API supports the use of DRS Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) to identify and locate cloud-based resources, regardless of where they are stored. DRS URIs enable data sharing and interoperability with external workflow systems.
