EMBOSS Needle is a program for performing global pairwise sequence alignments on DNA or protein sequences. Using the Needleman-Wunsch global alignment algorithm, this program takes two protein or nucleotide sequences and returns their optimal global sequence alignment. The European Bioinformatics Institute makes EMBOSS Needle available as an API via SOAP or REST protocols.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
