Databanks (top)

Select nucleic databanks if your query is nucleic sequence and you are using the FastA program, or if your query is protein sequence and you are using the TFastA program.

Nucleic: GenBank GenBank EST GenBank-New

Select protein databanks if your query is protein sequence and you are using the FastA program.

Protein: PIR SwissProt SwissProt-New


Subset Selection (top)

Enter key words to select a subset of the databanks that you wish to search against. Also you can specify which fields in the databank records that the keywords will be selected from. Key words may be the name of an organism or phylogenetic class, author names, other biological terms.

If you enter several keywords on a line, separate them by "&" for and, or by "|" for or. Wild cards "*" may be added to the keywords to increase matches. See the SRS manual for further details on query construction.
