Reports

Data processed on November 07, 2020.

RSids: An HTML report was created for each of the 588 unique RSids. Each report contains a list of the clinical trials in which the SNP appears, along with the sentences containing the SNP. Each clinical trial report also shows the mapped HPO as well as MeSH terms. The HPO terms and their associated genes are also displayed. Similarly, an HTML report was generated for each of the 394 unique clinical trials that mentioned SNPs.

Protein MutationsHTML reports were created for each of the 1,043 unique protein mutations. All 1,043 protein mutations are displayed on the left-hand side of the report to enable easy navigation. Similarly, reports for each of the clinical trials which reference a protein mutation are also available.

API

JAVA APIs to access the data. Each Java class is a stand-alone program and does not require any other package beyond the Java core classes: Users can simply download a Java IDE, install Java, and run the class on that IDE. Google Colab Notebook provides an example of Python code to access the data.
