1. Specify the input sequences
All the input sequences must be in one-letter nucleotide
code. The allowed alphabet (not case sensitive) is as follows:
A C G T and X (unknown)
All the non-alphabetic symbols will be ignored; all the alphabetic symbols
not in the alphabet will be converted to X before processing. The
sequences can be input in the following two ways:
Paste a single sequence (just the amino acids) 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 sequences
will be processed. However, currently there may be not more than
200 sequences and 500,000 nucleotides in toto
in one submission. Sequences longer than 500,000 nucleotides
are not allowed.
2. Customize your run
Currently no custom options are enabled.
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 the 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.
