Term Description Type Properties Example Enum
variantType The variantType declares the nature of the variation in relation to a reference. In a response, it is used to describe the variation. In a request, it is used to declare the type of event the Beacon client is looking for. If in queries variants can not be defined through a sequence of one or more bases (precise variants) it can be used standalone (i.e. without alternateBases) together with positional parameters. Examples here are e.g. queries for structural variants such as DUP (increased allelic count of material from the genomic region between start and end positions without assumption about the placement of the additional sequence) or DEL (deletion of sequence following start). Either alternateBases or variantType is required, with the exception of range queries (single start and end parameters). string NA SNP, DEL, DUP, BND NA
