Retrieve and Relate is the go-to tool for all genetic research related questions

Main features

Search

BioStrand’s approach to search queries is very different from today’s standard

Our tool’s free search bar enables you to start searching DNA, RNA or Proteins as well as free text - meaning there is no need to set any preliminary search parameters or filters - that restrict the search space.

Simply paste a biological sequence or certain functions, species or other metadata in the search bar to find similar sequences. Your results are immediately displayed on 3 levels: DNA, RNA and AA

Filter

Our philosophy is to keep things transparent and comprehensive

Start with a global overview in which you decide how to drill down to the details that suit your research question.

Filter with multiple granularities.

Exclude or include specific parameters and sequence details such as DNA, RNA, Proteins, and Patents with an easy tabular function.

Text-based Search

Unique capabilities based on the patented concepts of HyftsTM

These HyftsTM allow for combining textual data with biological sequence data.

In other words, searching by textual data is intrinsically linked to searching biological sequence data meaning that any other approaches are now obsolete.

We increase the speed of search to results.

Unique results presentation

Quickly drill down and extrapolate through the results

In the Explorer View, select or combine multiple dimensions such as taxonomy or ontology to quickly discover novelty functional relationships.

Obtain an overview for annotating functions, or discover other useful visual applications such as ontology maps, frequency tables or multiple sequence alignment views.

Alignment View

Sequence level details displayed

The Alignment View allows for a microscopical view down to the sequence level.

Never lose track of filters and change or apply additional filters easily as needed, even by free text search.

Switch between Alignment View and List View functions with the simple navigation bar, while continuously keeping selected filters in place.

Results List

A handy overview bar helps to keep track of chosen filters which makes it easy to apply and reapply the filters.

You can simply click on a filter and it immediately shows the relevant insights and results.

Each main domain is associated with a specific filter.

Multiple data sources

Remove limits for similarity and variant discovery

There is no limit to the number of databases that can be accessed or added, even from third party providers meaning they all can be searched simultaneously.

Access and search the three different sources of genetic data: public databases, pay-to-access databases and your own databases, allowing for more comprehensive and faster results.

‘Relate' becomes even more advanced. Relate turns into a recommendation engine used for sequence annotation.

Input can either be a biological sequence or FASTQ/ FASTA file (or comparable). BioStrand’s technology processes the input and finds all known domains based on available public data.

In conjunction with the search principle of multi-domain comparisons the researcher is able to effectively identify domains in the sequence and simultaneously correlate these domains to other known databases.
