1.5.9 Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST)
You can send sequences to Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) directly from the software. Select a sequence in the DNA view, right click and select ”Send DNA to BLAST (blastn)” or "Send AA to BLAST (blastp)" from the drop down menu (Figures 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168). You can also send a whole part to BLAST by right clicking in the linear view.
- This will open the BLAST website (blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov) with the selected sequence pasted. Please note that when sending amino acids to BLAST, the DNA sequence selected is translated according to the current translation table. For best results, select triplets of DNA in the correct frame.
