Prediction of genes in prokaryotes

WSDL EasyGene/EasyGene_1_2a_ws1.wsdl
Schema definitions ../common/ws_common_1_0b.xsd

We recommend that the first time users should load the WSDL file above to SoapUI and investigate the Web Service operations in that environment. SoapUI is a desktop application for inspecting, invoking, developing and functional/load/compliance testing of Web Services over HTTP. It can be downloaded free of charge from

    The EasyGene 1.0 server produces a list of predicted genes given a sequence of prokaryotic 
  DNA. Each prediction is attributed with a significance score (R-value) indicating how likely 
  it is to be just a non-coding open reading frame rather than a real gene. The user needs 
  only to specify the organism hosting the query sequence. Two more parameters (start codon 
  leniency and R-value cutoff) have default values which may be altered if needed.

  This service is fully asynchronous;  the usage is split into the following
  three operations, which is usually executed in this order.
  Procedures and messages used are either common and shared among all the CBS
  Web Services, or distinct to each individual Web Service. Marked [distinct] and
  [common] respectively.

  1. runService [distinct/common]
    Submit the input parapeter(s) and sequence data and returns a job identifier

    Input: [distinct]
          * 'Rvalue' - R-value cutoff (default 2)
          * 'model' - Organism abbreviation for model:

          * 'status' - Possible values are QUEUED, ACTIVE, FINISHED, WAITING, REJECTED, 

  3. fetchResult  [distinct/common]
  Once the status is 'FINISHED' the results generated by the Web Service can be retrieved by
  specifying the jobid;
