Your code is bad. You need to quote strings (hash values). Additionally S1 parameter looks a bit strange with the new line embedded - are you sure?

Here is the curl equivalent of a successful run I did earlier (I broke the lines for readability). You can see that by opening developer tools on Firefox. I have done a successful submission using this from a Linux terminal:

curl '' -H 'User-Agen +t: XXX' -H 'Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,imag +e/webp,*/*;q=0.8' -H 'Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5' --compressed -H 'Referer:' -H 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' -H 'Origin:' -H 'DNT: 1' -H 'Connection: keep-alive' -H 'Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: + 1' --data-raw 'mode=string&S1=NTLRVPDILALVIFAVVFLVGVLGNALVVWVTAFEAKRTINAI WFLNLAVADFLACLALPALFTSIVQHHHWPFGGAACSILPSLILLNMYASILLLATISADRFLLVFKPAW CQRFRGAGLAWILCAVAWGLALLLTIPSALYRVVREEYFPPKVLCGVDHDKRRERAVAIVRLVLGFLWPL LTLTICYTFILLRTWSARETRSTKTLKVVVAVVASFFIFWLPYQVTGIMMSFLEPSSPTFLLLKLDSLCV +S FAYINCCINPIIYVVAGQGFQKSLPELLREVLTEESVVR&R5=on&S2=&R4=TOPpre&TOPpre=on &R2=SignalYES&R3=Human&'

You can infere a couple of things from the above: 1) the correct POST params from --data-raw. 2) No cookies are required. So either continue with Mech but use the correct url and POST params or use LWP::UserAgent with a browser-like user-agent string

sarcasm on: if the cgi script you are accessing is also programmed by biologists all bets are on (off, whatever).
