Data Store API

The HCA Data Storage System (DSS) is a replicated data storage system designed for hosting large sets of scientific experimental data on Amazon S3 and Google Storage. The Data Store API provides a low level search and access interface to all data stored in the DCP.

The DSS exposes a REST API, with Python bindings allowing client applications to:

  1. Search for data and metadata.
  2. Download data and metadata.
  3. Manage subscriptions for notifications of data update events.
