Schema elements previously developed as part of various GA4GH efforts had been assembled in the SchemaBlocks demonstrator. Those schemas and documentation will be re-implemented in this space.

Additional information about data formats can be found on the GA4GH::Metadata site.

Dates & Times

Date and time formats are specified as ISO8601 compatible strings, both for time points as well as for intervals and durations.

GA4GH Data Model

Recommendation (DRAFT)

The GA4GH data model recommends the use of a default object hierarchy in standard and product design processes. While it reflects concepts from the original GA4GH schema, it provides mostly a structural guideline for API and data store design, but is not thought to provide a set of absolute implementation requirements.
