Search API - RC 5 Retrospective

Search API - RC 5 Retrospective


A retrospective is an agile process for continuous improvement of a team and their processes.

Firstly, thank you all for your contributions to the Search API specification, and those who spent much time leading up to the plenary implementing and raising questions! I know first-hand that open source work is hard, especially with a distributed team, committing time as and when they are able.

Thank you also to those who were able to attend the GA4GH plenary in Basel a while back. We had some great discussions, and I feel I made some great connections across other workstreams and projects.

GA4GH Search API Proposal

GA4GH Search API Proposal - Components

Executive Summary

The Matchmaker Exchange API is a successful live operating system which has resulted in real world life altering discoveries. Work on the Matchmaker Exchange API has shown that, while meeting most of the limited MME use cases, a more generalised discovery based API needs to be flexible, extensible, and planned for long term use.

A new discovery search based API should be expected to be in use for a minimum two decades once operational.

Keeping the barrier to entry low while not compromising on utility is essential. Each implementation of the API should be able to update to newer versions of the API at their own pace, without compromising interoperability. Each data repository exposing its data must be able to use as much or as little data for searching and responding to requests, is key.
