FastA protein similarity search API - Developers

The service compares a protein sequence submitted with a request against a database of protein structures. It reports matches with known protein sequences, indicating genetic relationships between the sample under analysis and sequences already documented and supporting conclusions about the sample's biological heritage. API methods support submission of a protein sequence to trigger analysis based on the FastA algorithm along with the specific reference database for the comparison. The API returns matching sequences found in the selected database to allow further analysis of genetic relationships with known proteins structures.
