The search algorithms introduced on the SequenceBase Portal are the following: Blast, Smith-Waterman, MOTIF and Multiple Sequence Search (MSS). Each search type can be used in case of searching for both nucleotide and protein sequences.
Apart from that, there are also TBlastN, BlastX, TBlastX algorithms:
For all these search algorithms, a wide range of algorithm parameters and filters is available. One of them is an effective, convenient and helpful filter enabling users to specify the Target Sequence Length:
The Target Sequence Length filter eliminates a lot of insignificant sequences as the resulting hits have only the specified and fixed sequence length. The searches which base on a preset limit on the sequence extension can be performed by all of the sequence search algorithms.
Also, the Sequence Length Filter can be applied to sort the search results, so that the sequences that do not correspond with the requirements are excluded from the search result table:
