This simple workflow finds patterns in you sequences and save them as annotations. You can use the workflow to map primers, regulatory signals, genes, etc. It loads any set of sequences from your files or folders and finds patterns in them. 

How to Use This Sample

If you haven't used the workflow samples in UGENE before, look at the "How to Use Sample Workflows" section of the documentation.

Workflow Sample Location

The workflow sample "Find Patterns" can be found in the "Scenarios" section of the Workflow Designer samples.

The workflow looks as follows:

Workflow Wizard

The wizard has 3 pages.

  1. Input sequence(s): On this page you must input sequence(s). 

  2. Find pattern: On this page you must input pattern(s) and you can modify searching parameters. 

    The following parameters are available:

    PatternSemicolon-separated list of patterns to search for.
    Annotate asName of the result annotations.
    Use pattern nameIf patterns are loaded from a file, use names of pattern sequences as annotation names. The name from the parameters is used by default.
    Max MismatchesMaximum number of mismatches between a substring and a pattern.
    Allow Insertions/DeletionsTakes into account possibility of insertions/deletions when searching. By default substitutions are only considered.

    Search in Translation

    Translates a supplied nucleotide sequence to protein and searches in the translated sequence.


    Support ambiguous bases

    Performs correct handling of ambiguous bases. When this option is activated insertions and deletions are not considered.


    Qualifier nameName of qualifier in result annotations which is containing a pattern name.
  3. Output data: On this page you can modify output parameters.
