Purpose: To find the position of your nucleotide or protein sequence(s) relative to the appropriate viral reference strain; or to give you a sequence based on a coordinate location.
Details: This tool has many uses:
How to use: To find the coordinates for your sequence, either
upload or paste your sequence (any format) in the box.
To retrieve the H77 sequence for a set of coordinates
(see HCV coordinate map
) enter the coordinates and choose the region. To retrieve the entire
gene or protein, enter coordinate values of "1" and "end".
To retrieve a single nucleotide or range with its surrounding
42-nucleotide sequence, enter the single coordinate in the "from" field
and check the box.
For more details and tips, see Sequence Locator Explanation.
