The Beacon v2 Reference Implementation (B2RI) is a free open source Linux-based software created by the Centre for Genomic Regulation (Barcelona, Spain) that allows lighting up a Beacon v2 out-of-the-box.

In this training session, a B2RI developer will give an overview on how to use the software to “beaconize” your data (from the user’s perspective). At the end of this training session, participants will be familiarized with the input and output requirements of the B2RI, as well as with the type of queries allowed. This training session is part of the CINECA GA4GH Beacon series.
