    The BLAST binaries contain the formatdb utility which is all you need to generate the indices prior to running BLAST

    formatdb -p F -d hg18.fa

    Would index the nucleotide file (-p F specifies that this is (F)alse for (p)rotein) named hg81.fa

    Database of BLAST

    Hello, everyone.

    Now I am doing alignment using BLAST. I want to align some sequences (FASTA format) against human chromosome. I used HG18 from UCSC (<http://hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/hg18/chromosomes/>) before with Bowtie. Are there pre-processed db on the FTP of BLAST (ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/db/), which is built from HG18? I am a freshman to Bio...

    Thanks a lot.

    Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
    by seqadmin




    The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...

    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...
