Introduction You have: Newly aligned genome of a bacterial non-model organism. You want: Perform functional annotation and analysis of its potential proteins. You need: Predict all potential genes or coding regions before proceeding to the functional annotation: Gene-Finding How can this be done? Use Glimmer, a set of algorithms which uses interpolated Markov models to distinguish coding from non-coding DNA in bacteria, archaea, and viruses. Glimmer
(This feature is now obsolete.) In the following article, I will explain how to set up an EC2 instance with the Blast+ AMI. This NCBI webpage takes us to the most recent Blast+ AMI in the AWS Marketplace, which we want to configure after hitting “Continue” on the right-hand side. We can now play around with the Region and EC2
Reformat/adapt Blast XML results against a custom UniProt sequence database to generate a species distribution chart Problem: Empty species distribution chart Solution: Reformat your SwissProt/UniProt blast XML results The species distribution chart is a good way to visualise the species found for all blast hits for a given dataset. It is possible to generate this chart with OmicsBox from the toolbar: functional
(Release Date: 3 November 2015) We released a new version (v.1.4.4) of our successful Blast2GO PRO Plugin for the CLC bio Genomics Workbench with new features and improvements. New features: Batch Rename your sequence names Set To Sense: Switch the sense of your sequences based on the best blast hit frame Longest ORF: Crop and convert sequences to longest ORF
OmicsBox allows running Blast locally. The blast algorithm will run on the user’s computer against a database that is installed locally. In order to do so, we have to either download a pre-formatted NCBI database or format our own database (see this tutorial until step 3). Pre-formatted databases can be downloaded directly from the NCBI ftp or via a Perl script provided by
Release Summary BioBam and Biomatters announce the launch of a solution for the functional annotation and analysis of genomics datasets: Blast2GO PRO Plugin for Geneious.
