Non-alphanumeric characters (from '-') are stripped.
All search keyword are used in searching links: e.g. bioinformatics links directory will search for links that contain all three keywords in title, description, or tags.
You can search for an exact phrase by enclosing the query in quotes: e.g. "bioinformatics links directory"
e.g. Search query "genomic sequences" dna will search for links containing the phrase "genomic sequences" and dna.
You can include OR uppercase keyword: e.g. dna OR rna looks for keywords dna or rna.
You can include - prefix or NOT uppercase keyword to define keywords that should not be included: e.g. dna OR rna NOT protein (alternatively: dna OR rna -protein) will look for links with keywords DNA or RNA, but not protein
Other Alignment Tools
Tools for aligning sets of sequences to a reference sequence (for example, cDNA to genomic).
Alternative Splicing Prediction (ASPic) can predict alternative splicing of user submitted genes based on comparative analysis of available transcript and genome data from a variety of species. Results include graphical and tabular views of the splicing patterns of full-length mRNA isoforms compatible with the detected splice sites of the genes as well as structural and functional annotations.
Burrows-Wheeler Aligner (BWA) is an efficient program that aligns relatively short nucleotide sequences against a long reference sequence such as the human genome. It implements two algorithms, bwa-short and BWA-SW. The former works for query sequences shorter than 200bp and the latter for longer sequences up to around 100kbp. Both algorithms do gapped alignment. They are usually more accurate and faster on queries with low error rates.
E2G is a tool that maps a large set of EST and cDNA sequences to a user-supplied genomic sequence. The use of pre-computed indexed data structures increases the efficiency of the sequence comparison process, allowing a large amount of data to be mapped within a reasonable timeframe.
The Genotyping tool at the NCBI identifies the genotype (or subtype) of viral sequences by using a sliding window approach to BLAST analysis against reference sequences for different viral subtypes. Results are shown as a graphical output plotting the top-scoring genotype. An alignment tool is also available.
HMMER Web Server is a tool for interactive sequence similarity searching. Methods are available for single protein sequence, multiple protein sequence alignment or profile HMM against a target sequence databases, and for searching a protein sequence against Pfam.
The Iccare (Interspecific Comparative Clustering and Annotation foR Est) web server compares all available EST and mRNA sequences for a query organism against the set of transcripts for a reference organism. The results are presented graphically and relative to the location of genes on the chromosomes of the reference organism.
The international ImMunoGeneTics information system (IMGT) V-QUEry and STandardization (V-QUEST) tool compares a user-provided fasta-formatted germline or rearranged T cell receptor or immunoglobulin variable sequence with a reference set of sequences.
MaxAlign is a web server for maximizing usable data in an alignment. It maximizes the number of nucleotide (or amino acid) symbols present in gap-free columns by selecting the optimal subset of sequences to exclude from the alignment.
PAL2NAL converts a multiple sequence alignment of proteins and the corresponding DNA (or mRNA) sequences into a codon alignment. Synonymous (Ks) and non-synonymous (Ka) substitution rates can be calculated.
PASS has been developed with an innovative strategy to perform fast gapped and ungapped alignment onto a reference sequence. It supports several data formats and allows the user to modulate very finely the sensitivity of the alignments. The program is designed to handle huge amounts of short reads generated by Solexa, SOLiD and Roche-454 technology. PASS is useful for single read mapping, paired-end resequensing, small RNA discovery and RNA-seq mapping.
segemehl is a software to map short sequencer reads to reference genomes. Unlike other methods, segemehl is able to detect not only mismatches but also insertions and deletions. Furthermore, segemehl is not limited to a specific read length and is able to map primer- or polyadenylation contaminated reads correctly. segemehl implements a matching strategy based on enhanced suffix arrays (ESA).
SHORE, for Short Read, is a mapping and analysis pipeline for short DNA sequences produced on a Illumina Genome Analyzer. It is designed for projects whose analysis strategy involves mapping of reads to a reference sequence. This reference sequence does not necessarily have to be from the same species, since weighted and gapped alignments allow for accuracy even in diverged regions.
