  • Weird Tabular BLAST Occurrence

    Something odd I just found while performing a stand alone BLAST. I have the number of descriptions set to 10, which is the number of hits reported for most of my queries... but one of my queries has over 50 hits reported.

    Anyone have any idea why this would be? I find it bizarre, I have never seen this before.

    Which version of BLAST, and what was the command line you used? i.e. Which options?

      I am using the latest release of BLAST+

      Command line:
      blastx -db databases/refseq_protein -gilist GI_hyp_put_pre_unchar -query /Users/wolniaklab/Desktop/1-2vs6-8_1_2_Sig_Increase/1-2vs6-8_1_2_Sig_Increase.txt -out /Users/wolniaklab/Desktop/1-2vs6-8_1_2_Sig_Increase/1-2vs6-8_1_2_Sig_Increase_OUT_TAB -outfmt 7 -num_descriptions 10 -num_alignments 10 -num_threads 8

        There was a bug in -num_descriptions and/or -num_alignments IIRC, and the NCBI recommended using -max_target_seqs which should override them.

          Looks like -max_target_seqs does not work neither. Another solutions?

            Do you have an example? Perhaps you are counting HSPs while BLAST is counting sequence matches?

              Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
              by seqadmin




              The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

              Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
              by seqadmin


              In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
