EMBOSS Water API - How To

The EMBOSS Water API allows developers to use the Smith-Waterman algorithm to calculate the local alignment of two DNA or protein sequences. Sequences may 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.
