  • RDP database

    Can I download RDP database from NCBI? There are some database on NCBI ftp (e.g.16SMicrobial.tar.gz, refseq_rna.00.tar.gz). Are these NCBI own database or they are from other sources (just in NCBI format)

    I try to download RDP database from here (http://rdp.cme.msu.edu/misc/resources.jsp)

    However, after I download it, I am not sure which format (or database) I should use.

    I want to use BLASTn to blast my sequences data and my data are not aligned. Should I use Unaligned database from the website?

    Also, should I use "Genbank, unaligned". What does Genebank mean on the website? Does it mean RDP_10_32 database in genebank format? or It means the NCBI rRNA database. Can I use it directly for blastn command? or I need to convert the database to NCBI request database.

    Best regards,
    Ben

    If you start with the release10_32_unaligned.fa FASTA format file you will have to create a blast database from it. You can't directly use it for blastn. Instructions on how to create a blastable database from a fasta (makeblastdb) file are available at the blast command line help page: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1763/

    release10_32_unaligned.gb appears to have the same sequences in GenBank format.

      What are those aligned databases for? Are they better for blast?

        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...
