The service compares a submitted protein sequence against a reference database with analysis of similarities to known sequences. The output helps to identify a sequence and establish its genetic relationships to established structures while also noting variations from known patterns. This analysis puts a sample in context of prior research and links it to existing genetic structures.
API methods support submission of a protein sequence identified in research to initiate the comparison. The API identifies similar sequences from its reference database, which allows the researcher to understand links to established genetic structures represented in the data.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
