Welcome to COMPASS’s documentation!

COMPASS (COMpendia Programmatic Access Support Software) is a software layer that provides a GraphQL endpoint to query compendia built using COMMAND>_ technology. COMPASS is meant to be the barebone interface on top of a compendium database and it is usually preferable to query the database using the Python package pyCOMPASS or the R package rCOMPASS for data analysis purposes.


VESPUCCI, the Vitis vinifera cross-platform expression compendium, is accessible using its COMPASS frontend. Check out the use cases!
