Search for gene and protein sequences

Blast (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool)

Query a nucleotide or protein sequence against a database of nucleotide or protein sequences.

Note 1: BlastP and BlastX searches take a very long time to run on the database of ALL protein sequences (~1 to 2 minutes per sequence). Please consider limiting your search to a specific species if you would like to reduce the amount of time it takes.

Search for DNA motifs

Takes an IUPAC-formatted DNA motif and searches against genomic DNA sequences. Returns a list of genomic features containing that motif which can be applicable to finding putative transcription factor binding sites and other interesting motifs.

Retrieve Sequences

Enter sequence coordinates and strand for any replicon in this database and retrieve the DNA sequence and/or three-frame translation.
