Welcome to refget Server Compliance documentation.
Refget Servers enables bulk access to reference genomic sequences and their metadata using an identifier which will be derieved from the sequence itself. Reference Servers can be queried for complete sequence as well as sub-sequences.
This documentation is primarily for the implementers of Reference Servers. Implementers MUST adhere to the documentation during the development phase of servers. This document uses 3 test sequences, two non-circular and one circular (Circular sequence support in the Reference Server is optional. Changes in the response w.r.t this support will be covered in later sections) for all the sample queries and error conditions. Testing suite for the Reference Server will also consists of these three sequences for API testing. All the implementations of Reference Servers MUST comply with the responses mentioned w.r.t these sequences.
