Identifies the conserved domains present in a protein sequence. CD-Search uses RPS-BLAST (Reverse Position-Specific BLAST) to compare a query sequence against position-specific score matrices that have been prepared from conserved domain alignments present in the Conserved Domain Database (CDD).
Genetic Relationship and Fingerprinting (GRAF) is a rapid statistical method to detect duplicates and closely related samples in large genomic datasets to be used as a quality assurance tool in dbGaP data processing. For more information, see this abstract in PubMed.
The Primer-BLAST tool uses Primer3 to design PCR primers to a sequence template. The potential products are then automatically analyzed with a BLAST search against user specified databases, to check the specificity to the target intended.
