Introduction

FASTA (pronounced FAST-AYE) is a suite of programs for searching nucleotide or protein databases with a query sequence. FASTA itself performs a local heuristic search of a protein or nucleotide database for a query of the same type. FASTX and FASTY translate a nucleotide query for searching a protein database. TFASTX and TFASTY translate a nucleotide database to be searched with a protein query. Optimal searches are available with the programs SSEARCH (local), GGSEARCH (global) and GLSEARCH (global query against local database).

Important Note

  • We kindly ask all users of EMBL-EBI Web Services to submit tool jobs in batches of no more than 30 at a time and not to submit more until the results and processing is complete. Please ensure that a valid email address is provided. Excessive usage of a particular resource will be dealt with in accordance with EMBL-EBI's Terms of Use. Please contact us if you need further information.

How to Access FASTA

FASTA can be accessed via

Web Form

Web interface for FASTA is available at : 

https://www.ebi.ac.uk/Tools/sss/fasta/ (Protein)

https://www.ebi.ac.uk/Tools/sss/fasta/nucleotide.html (Nucleotide)

https://www.ebi.ac.uk/Tools/sss/fasta/genomes.html (Genome)

https://www.ebi.ac.uk/Tools/sss/fasta/wgs.html (Whole Genome)

How to use this tool

Running a tool from the web form is a simple multiple steps process, starting at the top of the page and following the steps to the bottom.

Each tool has at least 2 steps, but most of them have more:

  • The first steps are usually where the user sets the tool input (e.g. sequences, databases...) (See example input formats)
  • In the following steps, the user has the possibility to change the default tool parameters (See example output formats)
  • And finally, the last step is always the tool submission step, where the user can specify a title to be associated with the results and an email address for email notification. Using the submit button will effectively submit the information specified previously in the form to launch the tool on the server

Note that the parameters are validated prior to launching the tool on the server and in the event of a missing or wrong combination of parameters, the user will be notified directly in the form.

Step 1 - Database

Databases

The databases to run the sequence similarity search against. Multiple databases can be used at the same time. See Databases to run SSS against FASTA for more details.

Step 2 - Sequence

Sequence Input Window

The query sequence can be entered directly into this form. The sequence can be in GCG, FASTA, EMBL (Nucleotide only), GenBank, PIR, NBRF, PHYLIP or UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot (Protein only) format. A partially formatted sequence is not accepted. Adding a return to the end of the sequence may help certain applications understand the input. Note that directly using data from word processors may yield unpredictable results as hidden/control characters may be present.

Sequence File Upload

A file containing a valid sequence in any format (GCG, FASTA, EMBL (Nucleotide only), GenBank, PIR, NBRF, PHYLIP or UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot (Protein only)) can be used as input for the sequence similarity search. Word processors files may yield unpredictable results as hidden/control characters may be present in the files. It is best to save files with the Unix format option to avoid hidden Windows characters.

Sequence Type

Indicates if the query sequence is protein, DNA or RNA. Used to force FASTA to interpret the input sequence as specified type of sequence (via. the '-p', '-n' or '-U' options), this prevents issues when using nucleotide sequences that contain many ambiguous residues.

TypeAbbreviation
PROTEINprotein
DNAdna
RNArna

Default value (for Protein FASTA) is: PROTEIN [protein]

Default value (for Nucleotide, Genome and Whole Genome Shotgun FASTA) is: DNA [dna]

Matrix

(Protein searches) The substitution matrix used for scoring alignments when searching the database.

Default value (for Protein) is: 2

Default value for (Nucleotide/Genome/Whole Genome Shotgun) is: 6

Histogram

Turn on/off the histogram in the FASTA result. The histogram gives a qualitative view of how well the statistical theory fits the similarity scores calculated by the program.

Default value is: no [false]

Filter

Filter regions of low sequence complexity. This can avoid issues with low complexity sequences where matches are found due to composition rather then meaningful sequence similarity. However in some cases filtering also masks regions of interest and so should be used with caution.

ServiceValueDescription


Protein FASTA

segUses the SEQ filter (Wootton and Federhen, 1993) to replace low-complexity regions with 'X' in protein query sequences.
xnuUses the XNU filter (Claverie and States, 1993) to mask statistically significant tandem repeats in protein query sequences.
seg+xnuUses both SEG and XNU to filter low-complexity regions and statistically significant tandem repeats in protein query sequences.

Protein/Nucleotide/Genome/Whole Genome FASTA noneNo filtering of the query sequence.

Default value is: none

Statistical Estimates

Turn on/off annotation features. Annotation features shows features from UniProtKB, such as variants, active sites, phospho-sites and binding sites that have been found in the aligned region of the database hit. To see the annotation features in the results after this has been enabled, select sequences of interest and click to 'Show' Alignments. This option also enables a new result tab (Domain Diagrams) that highlights domain regions.

Default value is: no [false]

Step 4 - Submission

Job title

It's possible to identify the tool result by giving it a name. This name will be associated to the results and might appear in some of the graphical representations of the results.

Email Notification

Running a tool is usually an interactive process, the results are delivered directly to the browser when they become available. Depending on the tool and its input parameters, this may take quite a long time. It's possible to be notified by email when the job is finished by simply ticking the box "Be notified by email". An email with a link to the results will be sent to the email address specified in the corresponding text box. Email notifications require valid email addresses.

Email Address

If email notification is requested, then a valid Internet email address in the form joe@example.org must be provided. This is not required when running the tool interactively (The results will be delivered to the browser window when they are ready).
