Sequence Alignment-based Sequence Variability

Service Description

SEQALSV service is designed to facilitate calculation of sequence alignmets between a given sequence (query) and a library of provided sequences. Calculations are performed using Smith-Waterman and BLAST algorithms.

For SEQALSV processing all sequences (query sequence and a library) should be entered in FASTA format.

   A sequence in FASTA format begins with a single-line description, followed by 
   lines of sequence data. The description line is distinguished from the sequence
   data by a greater-than (">") symbol in the first column (see an example below):
