1. Specify the input sequences
The sequences intended for processing can be input in the following two ways:
Paste a single sequence (just the nucleotides) or a number of sequences in
format into the upper window of the main server page.
Select a FASTA
file on your local disk, either by typing the file name into the lower window
or by browsing the disk.
Both ways can be employed at the same time: all the specified sequence will be
The allowed input alphabet is A, C, G, T, U
and X (unknown); all the other symbols will be converted to X
before processing. T and U are treated as equivalent.
2. Select organism type
Depending on the origin of your input sequences click on either
"Vertebrate" or "A. Thaliana". The former is the default.
3. Submit the job
Click on the "Submit" button. The status of your job (either 'queued'
or 'running') will be displayed and constantly updated until it terminates and
the server output appears in your browser window.
At any time during the wait you may enter your e-mail address and simply leave
the window. Your job will continue; you will be notified by e-mail when it has
terminated. The e-mail message will contain the URL under which the results are
stored; they will remain on the server for 24 hours for you to collect them.
