Beacon CNV Queries

Beacon Project Query Documentation

The Beacon project's documentation includes examples for current queries enabling discovery of CNVs (in resources supporting these formats).

Bracket queries

Beacon parameters

  • In principle the assemblyId should not be needed if specifying the refseq ID
  • Most beacons probably would go for assemblyId + chromosome-style referenceName (e.g. 9)
"g_variant": {
    "assemblyId": "GRCh38",
    "end": [21967753, 22500000],
    "referenceName": "refseq:NC_000009.12",
    "start": [21500000, 21975098],
    "variantType": "EFO:0030067"

MongoDB translation

The parameters in the MongoDB query represent a "VRSified standard model" structure - YMMV. Also, this example shows the expansion of the basic "deletion" code (EFO:0030067) into all its child terms.
