EMBL-EBI provides programmatic access to various data resources and analysis tools via Web Services technologies 1) 2).
Web Services is an integration and inter-operation technology. To ensure client and server software from various sources will work well together, the technology is built on open standards:
Representational state transfer (REST): a software architecture style.
Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP): a messaging protocol for transporting information.
Web Services Description Language (WSDL): a method for describing Web Services and their capabilities.
For the transport layer Web Services utilise common network protocols, typically the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) used to provide access to web sites.

Programs organised by function
|Data Retrieval||A list of EMBL-EBI Web Services for data retrieval.|
|Protein Functional Analysis||Tools to perform protein functional analysis.|
|Sequence Similarity Search||Identify potentially homologous sequences based on sequence similarity.|
|Multiple Sequence Alignment||Alignment of a set of three or more, protein or nucleotide sequences.|
|Pairwise Sequence Alignment||Identify regions of similarity that may indicate functional, structural and/or evolutionary relationships between two biological sequences (protein or nucleic acid).|
|Phylogeny||Access to phylogenetic tree generation methods.|
|Sequence Format Conversion||Convert between common sequence formats, or verify the formatting of a sequence.|
|Sequence Statistics||Analyse a sequence to determine its properties and use statistics to assign significance.|
Translate a coding nucleotide sequence in to a protein sequence, or back-translate from a protein sequence to a possible coding nucleotide sequence.
|Sequence Operations||Generate checksums for a sequence using a range of checksum/digest methods which can be used to identify potentially identical sequences when searching the corresponding checksum field in sequence databases such as those available from ENA and UniProt.|
|Literature and Ontologies||Look-up ontology terms and navigate ontology relationships or access and analyse the literature.|
