Data stored in Google Genomics is accessible via the Google Genomics API. This means that any programming language that can make network requests over HTTPS can be used to access it.

We have examples in github, which can help get you started. The code within each language-specific folder demonstrates the same things:

  • Getting the read bases for NA12872 at a specific position
  • Getting the variant overlapping that same position, and outputting the genotype

If this is what you are looking for, then take a look at the Python getting started example.
