Parameters

Required

NameTypeDescriptionDefaultExample Values
id String An Ensembl genetree ID - ENSGT00390000003602

Optional

NameTypeDescriptionDefaultExample Values
aligned Boolean Return the aligned string if true. Otherwise, return the original sequence (no insertions) 0 -
callback String Name of the callback subroutine to be returned by the requested JSONP response. Required ONLY when using JSONP as the serialisation method. Please see the user guide. - randomlygeneratedname
cigar_line Boolean Return the aligned sequence encoded in CIGAR format 0 -
