Access Metadata & Data

Gen3 includes a portal service for providing a web-based graphical user interface for interacting with a Gen3 data commons within a standard web-browser. The portal is an interactive website that allows users to explore, submit, download, and analyze data. The data portal utilizes the public APIs offered by the data commons as a demonstration of the power of Gen3.
