Sequence Formats

The input sequence is piped through the Readseq program prior to being analyized. The Readseq program is developed and produced by gilbertd@bio.indiana.edu, 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
