A first protein sequence associated with the organism is identified, wherein the first protein sequence comprises a plurality of ordered residues. A plurality of sub-sequences is generated based on the first protein sequence, wherein each sub-sequence comprises a plurality of contiguous residues and a starting residue number of each sub-sequence differs from a starting residue number of another sub-sequence by one position in the first protein sequence. A first unique sub-sequence comprising a first set of contiguous residues based on the plurality of sub-sequences is identified, wherein the first unique sub-sequence is specific to the organism and is identified based on a dataset of protein sequences and stored.
