Sequence Search Types

Subsequence search, full sequence search

The subsequence search finds sequences that carry a given part of sequence or sequence motifs described in a query sequence. This type of search is relevant in case of filtering by sequence parts responsible for e.g. structural stability or biological activity. The search takes into account only exact matches within the sequences to be filtered.

The full sequence search filters based on exact, full-length sequence matches. The query sequence matches only if it possesses all the monomer abbreviations present in a whole sequence to be searched.

Similarity searches

Distance-based similarity search

The distance-based similarity search enables to filter sequence variants which differ in neighbouring motifs, monomer composition and length.
To perform the search, the distance should be set by providing a number. The value means the number of differences between the query sequence and the target sequences.
