EMBOSS Matcher API - Source Code

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.
