The service defines the gene structure implied by a protein sequence within a particular genome. It aides in research projects to define gene sequencing by analyzing a protein sequence and identifying the genes defined, with accommodation for sequencing errors and errors and ambiguously defined genes, even where complete genomes are not fully described. The service provides locations within the genome where the submitted protein sequence could appear, which indicates the genes corresponding to the sequence.
API methods support submission of a protein sequence with data about its source within a particular genome. Methods return comprehensive identification of genes defined by the sequence and identifies available genetic profiles for species characterized by the submitted profile and genes.
