GlyConnect RDF endpoint

The RDF endpoint is reachable at : https://glyconnect.expasy.org/sparql

The data model is based on the GLYCO COnjugate Ontology and data is licenced under CC BY 4.0

No user interface is yet ready to send Sparql query to the endpoint, but it will be available early 2021.

Example queries using curl

Write a command including the query to select 10 predicates and return data as json :
curl -X POST https://glyconnect.expasy.org/sparql --data-urlencode 'query=SELECT * { ?s ?p ?o } LIMIT 10' --data-urlencode 'format=json'

The SPARQL query can be loaded from a file (protein_ref_isoform.rq in the example):
curl -X POST https://glyconnect.expasy.org/sparql -H 'content-type: application/sparql-query' -H 'accept: application/sparql-results+json' --data-binary @protein_ref_isoform.rq
