The service provides conversion of DNA and protein alignment sequences from biological research to express the same information in alternative notation and as input for a different analytical software package. Input and output formats supported include ALN, FASTA, GDE, MSF, NEXUS, PHYLIP, and PIR. Analytical packages supported include Clustal, Mafft, Tcoffee, Muscle, and Probcons. The service can also de-dupe results to remove multiple identical repetitions from results.
API methods support description of input data files, including operating system, analytical software, and data formatting, along with the same parameters for desired output. Methods allow selection of conversion options such as treatment of duplicate and error results. The API returns data converted from the input data expressed for the desired output format.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
