We, Russian scientists of the autosome team, are depressed by the dire events caused by Russian military actions in Ukraine.
We express our condolences to all affected people and sincerely hope for a prompt transition to peace.

HOCOMOCO API (experimental; not stable)

HOCOMOCO allows for JSON APIs requests. Basically it's enough to add .json extension to an URL.

Get motif details

To get information about a motif MotifID, send a request https://hocomoco11.autosome.org/motif/{MotifID}.json

If you need to get PWM / PCM use https://hocomoco11.autosome.org/motif/{MotifID}/pwm.json and https://hocomoco11.autosome.org/motif/{MotifID}/pcm.json URLs.

https://hocomoco11.autosome.org/motif/{MotifID}/thresholds.json gives you additionally a list of precalculated P-values for different PWM scores.

(deprecated) Alternatively you can add with_matrices=true and with_thresholds=true parameters to a general motif request: https://hocomoco11.autosome.org/motif/{MotifID}.json?with_matrices=true&with_thresholds=true

Get motif list

One can get a list of all motifs (only MotifIDs) in a collection by sending a request https://hocomoco11.autosome.org/{species}/{arity}.json

species can be either human or mouse .

arity can be either mono for mononucleotide models or di for dinucleotide.

By default only core high-quality models are shown. Add ?full=true if you want D-quality models and alternative binding motifs to be listed.

Request https://hocomoco11.autosome.org/{species}/{arity}.json?summary=true gives some additional information which can be useful to organize search through motif and gene names, TF family and subfamily names.

Motif search

Use the following request https://hocomoco11.autosome.org/search.json?arity={arity}&species={species}&query={query} to search for a motif across `full_name` (MotifID), `motif_families` and `gene_names` fields. Any regexp can be given as a query. Add &summary=true or &detailed=true if you want detailed information.

https://hocomoco11.autosome.org/search?family_id={TFClass id} returns a list of motifs from a TFClass group specified by TFClass id.
