ExonMapper


[Introduction] [Sequence Selection] [Parameters] [Program Output]

Introduction

Large scale exon-mapping becomes more and more attractive because of

and

cDNA sequences provide the protein sequences, but exon-mapping also reveals the gene structure and possibly locates the promoter of full length cDNAs. Large amounts of data require non-interactive methods that also tolerate frame shifts and partial sequences.

Genomatix'ExonMapperis a tool to fulfill these requirements:


ExonMapper Input Data

Sequence Selection
Enter the mRNA/cDNA sequences Enter a set with at least one mRNA/cDNA sequence.

mRNA/cDNA sequences are assumed to be in 5'- 3' direction. All sequences in the set must have the same format. For a description of the available sequence formats see thesequence help page

Enter the genomic DNA sequences Depending on the selected task, you will have to enter a set of genomic DNA sequences (task "Exon mapping on your sequence(s)") or select a database (task "Exon mapping against database"):
  • Enter a set of genomic DNA sequences: All sequences in the set must have the same format. For a description of the available sequence formats see the sequence help page
  • Select a database: For a description of the database access see the list of available databases
ExonMapper parameters
Hits
  • Maximum number of results.
    Enter the maximum number of mapping results that shall be listed in the output. Only the best results are listed.

  • Minimum average exon alignment quality.
    Enter the minimum average percentage of perfect matches in exon alignments.

  • Minimum percentage of aligned mRNA. Enter the minimum percentage of mRNA which must be mapped on a genomic sequence.
Email address Here you can choose between two methods for receiving the results:
  • Show result directly in browser window
    In this option the URL of the result is directly shown in your browser window.

    Warning: Please use this option only for analyses which can be performed in a short time.
    If the analysis takes longer than the timeout of the webserver, the connection will be terminated and you will receive an error message (e.g. "The document contained no data."). In this case, the results will not be available, please restart the analysis using the option below "Send the URL of the result to".

  • Send the URL of the result via email
    In this option an email with the URL of the results will be sent to the user provided email address, when the analysis is finished.

The results will be available for a limited time on our server. For details of how long your results will be kept please see the result-email. After that period they will be deleted unless protected in the project management!
