  • Blastn output retrieve sequence

    Hello, is there an easy way to retrieve the sequences from the hits in the blastn output? I just need the sequences without the gap insertions "-". Thank you.

    Look at the "blastdbcmd" program examples on this page. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NB...BLAST_search_r .. if you are looking to retrieve the subject sequences.

      Thank you GenoMax. I tried using blastdbcmd but for some reason it doesn't seem to be working as described on that page.

      I have downloaded the Gallus 4 genome from NCBI and ran makeblastdb using blast+ 2.2.25. When I run:
      blastdbcmd -db gga_ref_Gallus_gallus-4.0_all.db -entry all | grep ">" | head
      I get:
      >gnl|BL_ORD_ID|0 gi|358485511|ref|NC_006088.3| Gallus gallus breed Red Jungle fowl, inbred line UCD001 chromosome 1, Gallus_gallus-4.0, whole genome shotgun sequence
      >gnl|BL_ORD_ID|1 gi|358485510|ref|NC_006089.3| Gallus gallus breed Red Jungle fowl, inbred line UCD001 chromosome 2, Gallus_gallus-4.0, whole genome shotgun sequence
      >gnl|BL_ORD_ID|2 gi|358485509|ref|NC_006090.3| Gallus gallus breed Red Jungle fowl, inbred line UCD001 chromosome 3, Gallus_gallus-4.0, whole genome shotgun sequence
      >gnl|BL_ORD_ID|3 gi|358485508|ref|NC_006091.3| Gallus gallus breed Red Jungle fowl, inbred line UCD001 chromosome 4, Gallus_gallus-4.0, whole genome shotgun sequence
      >gnl|BL_ORD_ID|4 gi|358485507|ref|NC_006092.3| Gallus gallus breed Red Jungle fowl, inbred line UCD001 chromosome 5, Gallus_gallus-4.0, whole genome shotgun sequence
      >gnl|BL_ORD_ID|5 gi|358485506|ref|NC_006093.3| Gallus gallus breed Red Jungle fowl, inbred line UCD001 chromosome 6, Gallus_gallus-4.0, whole genome shotgun sequence
      >gnl|BL_ORD_ID|6 gi|358485505|ref|NC_006094.3| Gallus gallus breed Red Jungle fowl, inbred line UCD001 chromosome 7, Gallus_gallus-4.0, whole genome shotgun sequence
      >gnl|BL_ORD_ID|7 gi|358485504|ref|NC_006095.3| Gallus gallus breed Red Jungle fowl, inbred line UCD001 chromosome 8, Gallus_gallus-4.0, whole genome shotgun sequence
      >gnl|BL_ORD_ID|8 gi|358485503|ref|NC_006096.3| Gallus gallus breed Red Jungle fowl, inbred line UCD001 chromosome 9, Gallus_gallus-4.0, whole genome shotgun sequence
      >gnl|BL_ORD_ID|9 gi|358485502|ref|NC_006097.3| Gallus gallus breed Red Jungle fowl, inbred line UCD001 chromosome 10, Gallus_gallus-4.0, whole genome shotgun sequence

      But when I try running:
      blastdbcmd -db gga_ref_Gallus_gallus-4.0_all.db -entry 358485511

      I get:
      Error: 358485511: OID not found
      BLAST query/options error: Entry not found in BLAST database

      The entry seems to be there so why can't blastdbcmd recognize it when I try to query it?

        Did you run makeblastdb with '-parse_deflines' ?

          Ok I just ran makeblastdb with the -parse_seqids option and it works now. What is the difference between parse_seqids and parse_deflines?

            Sorry, -parse_seqids is the flag I was thinking..

              See http://blastedbio.blogspot.jp/2012/1...cbi-blast.html for my thoughts on the difference between the NCBI style IDs and free-format user provided identifiers (and the problems using them with blastdbcmd).

                The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
                by seqadmin



                Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

                Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
                by seqadmin


                New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”
