    It looks right now like bfast may be my best bet. I noticed bwa doesn't allow paired-end reads for sequences longer than ~200bp.

    Since the query is up to 1Kb I would try the "bwa bwasw" command, though I have not tried it. You might have to split your queries into long and short ones. Anyone else have any advice?

    > Minimum sequence length: 1,028 bases
    > Maximum sequence length: 63,086,992 bases
    > Average sequence length: 843,760 bases
    > Number of Ns in file: 18,289,543
    > Longest N stretch: 1,185,460
    > Number of sequences containing N: 771

    If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
    How about trying BLAT? It may be slow, but in this situation it may give you proper sensitivity.

    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...
