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 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.
