SERVICES DATA PRODUCT
This data product deploys gene annotation information from NCBI. It is used to provide gene annotations in other data products.

This data product is used to service other data products.
For example, you may be running an analysis from Data Product 1 and you may want to run a pathway analysis on your selected genes. This data product will serve that function without you needing to leave Data Product 1.
The important aspect worth noting is that the gene/pathway/variant information in the service data product doesn’t need to be added to every other data product and updated in a timely manner.
- The industry standard right now is not efficient — people have to integrate gene metadata into each omics dataset. Not only does it create extra work and redundancy across data products, the gene metadata also gets old and outdated.
- By building a separate data product that acts as a service, you can streamline the reference information for easy access and updates.
