The service compares a submitted protein sequence against a reference database with analysis of similarities to known sequences. The output helps to identify a sequence and establish its genetic relationships to established structures while also noting variations from known patterns. This analysis puts a sample in context of prior research and links it to existing genetic structures.
API methods support submission of a protein sequence identified in research to initiate the comparison. The API identifies similar sequences from its reference database, which allows the researcher to understand links to established genetic structures represented in the data.
