OperationDefinition: Find Population Specific Haplotypes

Official URL: Version: 3.0.1-SNAPSHOT
Active as of 2024-07-08 Computable Name: FindPopulationSpecificHaplotypes

Retrieve count or list of patients having specified genotypes/haplotypes.


Retrieve count or list of patients having specified genotypes/haplotypes.

Population queries are designed to return a count of patients that match each item sought, with or without a list of patients matching the item(s) sought.

As described in general guidance, FHIR Genomics Operations do not support 'AND' logic unless stated otherwise. This particular operation supports a logical 'AND' of the 'haplotypes' parameter, specified by repeating the parameter. 'AND' logic is useful when searching for other subjects sharing a specific constellation of haplotypes, as in the following example that seeks patients having haplotype 'a' or 'b' or 'c', and haplotype 'd' or 'e' or 'f', and haplotype 'i' or 'j' or 'k':


Generated Narrative: OperationDefinition find-population-specific-haplotypes



List of haplotypes and/or genotypes being sought. Must be in token or codesystem|code format.


Enables an App to limit results to those that are 'germline' or 'somatic'. Default is to include variants irrespective of genomic source class.


Include list of matching patients if set to true. Default=false.


(one for each haplotype in haplotypeList)


haplotype/genotype from haplotypeList


Count of patients having this variant


Count of patients in the cohort searched


Patient ID. Include if includePatientList=true


Error Codes

Valid response codes are shown in the following table. Additional response codes (e.g. 5xx server error) may also be encountered.
