3. Select status of ordering of domains between in order or in any order.
4. Select match type using entry of Perfect match.
If you do not select perfect match, all kinds of genes containing domain architectures filled by users with additional domains are searched.
5. Click a search button to execute Gene Search.
Step 3. Result of Gene Search.
1. In result window, statistical report of kingdom-wide distribution of genes of interest including domain architectures is shown.
2. Users can download sequences of CDS or peptides by clicking ‘Peptide Download’ or ‘CDS Download’, respectively.
3. Users can also download the sequence by select ‘ALL’ (include alternative spliced genes) or ‘Representative’ (exclude alternative spliced genes)
4. If you want to download kingdom-specific sequences, click panel of certain kingdom in ‘No. of proteins distribution’. The status of each kingdom is indicated by blue line.
5. Users can investigate the domain architectures of searched genes by clicking ‘Viewer Panel on’.
6. To download the sequence file for each gene, click the button of ‘Peptide’ or ‘CDS’.
7. To investigate detailed information of each gene, users can access ‘Gene Viewer’ page by clicking ‘Gene Viewer’ button.
8. According to bottom of window, you move the result pages to click aside button.
1. Load the sample reference and sample query. They are mitochondrial DNA sequences of human and fugu.
2. Select ‘DNA’ in both ‘Reference sequence type’ and ‘Query sequence type’.
3. Loaded data is in format of FASTA, select ‘0’ in ‘Input format’.
4. We like to see the result of colored alignments in html format. Select ‘4’ in ‘Output type’ and ‘html’ in ‘Output extension type’.
5. Select options -c -R01
6. In this example, we do not select options in ‘Maximum expected alignments’, ‘Alignment type’, ‘Mach/Mismatch score matrix’, ‘Seeding schema’, and ‘Maximum initial matches’.
7. Click submit button to execute LAST.
8. Results can be accessed via ‘My Page’. In the ‘Detail View’, information of used options is shown. In the ‘View File’, the result of coloured alignments in html format is in ‘maf_convert’ folder. The ‘many to one alignment’ maf file is in ‘maf_split’ folder and presented as ‘output.split.maf’ file. The ‘one to one alignment’ maf file is in ‘maf_swap’ folder and presented as ‘output.split.swap.split.swap.maf’ file. In the dot plot, reference genome is along the top, and query genome is down the side.
1. Users can perform BLAST analysis by fill out sequence, upload users’ files in local computer (Local File), or users’ files in ‘My Gene’ (Cloud File).
2. Select a blast program and database for blast.

1. It is executed upon completion of downloading the KoDS high-speed transmission system
(KoDS v.3.5 as of the date of preparing this document) and the initial login screen will be displayed.
Upon selecting your preferred service system, you may log into the system using your user details.
2.The list of user local files is displayed on the left and the list of user data stored in the KOBIC cloud storage is displayed on the right. Select a data file you want to transmit and drag & drop it to start transmitting data. The progress status of data transmission is displayed on the monitoring screen on the bottom along with the total transmission capacity and real-time network resource usage status.
