Hi Igo,

What type of information are you looking for?

We have a user guide, available on:
It describes the general structure of the REST server and contains 
examples on how to write a client to retrieve data.

The REST server itself has documentation for each endpoint, detailing 
what data can be retrieved as well as additional parameters available.
See for example:

If you are interested in more detailed information on the underlying 
databases, the REST server is based on our Perl API and its MySQL schema
This is documented on our main website, for example
for the Variation schema
for information on some of the data provided.

If this does not answer your question, please let us know in more detail 
what type of information your are looking for.
