The input sequence is piped through the Readseq program prior to being analyized. The Readseq program is developed and produced by firstname.lastname@example.org, Biology Department, Indiana University. The program is available from the IUbio archive site.
The allowable input sequence formats are listed below:
1. IG/Stanford 10. Olsen 2. GenBank/GB 11. Phylip3.2 3. NBRF 12. Phylip 4. EMBL 13. Plain/Raw 5. GCG 14. PIR/CODATA 6. DNAStrider 15. MSF 7. Fitch 16. PAUP/NEXUS 8. Pearson/Fasta 9. Zuker
Note: READSEQ requires a minimum sequence length of 111 bps. for a Plain/Raw sequence to be recognized. If you are trying to submit plain/raw sequence shorter than this, make it FASTA by simply adding a first line consisting of a ">".
For Example: Unaccepted Accepted FASTA Short Sequence Short Sequence ACGTGGGTGGGGG > GGGGGGAC ACGTGGGTGGGGG GGGGGGAC
