The GPMDB REST interface

Bioinformatics. 2015 Jun 15;31(12):2056-8. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btv107. Epub 2015 Feb 19.


The Global Proteome Machine and Database (GPMDB) representational state transfer (REST) service was designed to provide simplified access to the proteomics information in GPMDB using a stable set of methods and parameters. Version 1 of this interface gives access to 25 methods for retrieving experimental information about protein post-translational modifications, amino acid variants, alternate splicing variants and protein cleavage patterns.

Availability and implementation: GPMDB data and database tables are freely available for commercial and non-commercial use. All software is also freely available, under the Artistic License. (GPMDB REST Service), (Service description and help), and (GPM main project description and documentation). The code for the interface and an example REST client is available at
