  • Inquiry of Parsing tblastn result to get nucleotide sequence from the db file

    Hi all,

    I met a problem when I tried to parse tblastn result:

    Using either bioperl Bio::SearchIO ($hsp->hit_string) or -outfmt parameter of tblastn can only return the amino acid sequence of the hit.

    But I want to get the original nucleotide sequence before translation (not the whole one, but only the part which matches the $hsp->query_string).

    How could I do that? Any idea?

    Thanks a lot in advance!!!!!!!!!

    All the best,
    Ying

    Hi,

    tblastn won't give you the nucleotide sequences, however you get the subject start and end positions. You can use an Emboss program (seqret) or Bioperl to get the sequence from the original file.

        Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
        by seqadmin


        Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

        Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
        by seqadmin


        Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
