The Beacon registry server, hosted through the European Genome-Phenome Archive, monitors a number of implementations of the Beacon v2 protocol by various organisations actively involved in Beacon protocol development.
The Progenetix database and cancer genomic information resource contains genome profiles of more than 140000 individual cancer genome screening experiments, with the majority representing results from genomic copy number assessment studies. With its Beacon+ forward-looking test implementation, since 2016 Progenetix has been developing concepts for Beacon protocol extensions such as CNV query options or handover data delivery.
