BLASTWe provide NCBI- BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool) to compare nucleotide or protein sequences to our EST sequence databases. BLAST can be used to infer functional and evolutionary relationships between sequences and help identify members of gene families.

The A. mexicanum transcriptome has been deep sequenced (15,000,000 Roche 454 short sequence reads and 50K Sanger reads) and assembled. The resulting assembly can now be BLAST searched here. There are two variants of the assembly - Assembly V4.0 w/ Isotigs and Assembly V4.0 w/ Contigs. Please click here to see a detailed explanation about Isotigs from 454. <p">Click here to view statistics for various assembly versions (PDF) Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
