Build queries to locate a subset of data within a study for further analysis. Queries use metadata properties and their values to filter study for specific entities. BioData Catalyst powered by Seven Bridges provides the following three query methods:

  • Method one: the Data Browser - use the Data Browser to query study via an intuitive visual interface. The Data Browser's autosuggest and search functionalities facilitate querying while alleviating the need to learn new terminology.
  • Method two: the Datasets API - use the Datasets API to programmatically browse and query study using API requests written in JSON. The Datasets API is suitable for queries containing numerous parameters since the query is formatted as a concise dictionary.
