Seek & Blastn
Seek for nucleotide sequences in pdf files and then call a local version of blastn.
To try the prototype: select a zip file containing pdf files... upload and wait... wait... for a link to results.
Please consider having a look at how to interpert results.
The seek& blastn version is in testing phase and may therefore produce false-positive and false-negative results.
Seek & blastn searches query nucleotide sequences against the human
genomic + transcript database. Published nucleotide sequence reagents
from other species may therefore be incorrectly identified by seek
We strongly recommend that seek & blastn results be subjected to
manual checking prior to taking any further action, such as contacting
authors or journal editors, or flagging publications using PubPeer or
