The service compares a protein sequence submitted with a request against a database of protein structures. It reports matches with known protein sequences, indicating genetic relationships between the sample under analysis and sequences already documented and supporting conclusions about the sample's biological heritage.
API methods support submission of a protein sequence to trigger analysis based on the FastA algorithm along with the specific reference database for the comparison. The API returns matching sequences found in the selected database to allow further analysis of genetic relationships with known proteins structures.
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.
