An implmentation of the classical sequence analysis workflow:

  1. Find homologues (sequence similarity search)
  2. Fetch homologues
  3. Align homologues (multiple sequence alignment)
  4. Produce phylogenetic tree

In this implementation the EBI webservices are used:

  1. WU-BLAST (WSWUBlast) blastp vs. UniProtKB
  2. dbfetch (WSDbfetch)
  3. ClustalW (WSClustalW2)
  4. ClustalW (WSClustalW2)

Note: this version does not add the inital query sequence to the alignment, and so is most useful when used with the identifers of existing database entries.

Workflow Workflow for Automated Comparative Protein... (2)

This workflow performs "parallel" generic protein sequence analysis. In order to do that a list of known protein identifiers chosen by the biologist enters into the software to perform different multiple sequence alignments and finally phylogenetic analysis.
