The EMBOSS Matcher API allows developers to identify local similarities in two DNA or protein sequences. It uses a rigorous algorithm based on Bill Pearson's lalign application. Sequences can be submitted in GCG, FASTA, EMBL (Nucleotide only), GenBank, PIR, NBRF, PHYLIP, or UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot (Protein only) format.
The API is available in both RESTful and SOAP versions, and responses are formatted in XML.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
