Name:
'_struct_ref.seq_align'

Definition:

   A flag to indicate the scope of the alignment between the
   sequence of the entity or biological unit described in the data
   block and that in the referenced database entry. 'complete'
   indicates that alignment spans the entire length of both
   sequences (although point differences may occur and can be
   annotated using the data items in the STRUCT_REF_SEQ_DIF
   category). 'partial' indicates a partial alignment. The region
   (or regions) of the alignment may be delimited using data items
   in the STRUCT_REF_SEQ category. This data item may also take
   the value '.', indicating that the reference is not to a
   sequence.

Type: ucode

Mandatory item: no


The data value must be one of the following:
