|BLAST for beginners|
tutorial is designed as a quick introduction to the BLAST family of sequence
These slides show a progression of steps in accessing and using BLAST, beginning at the home page for the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) ( www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov ) and ending at PubMed, a tool for searching scientific literature. In this series, a nucleotide sequence is submitted and compared, using blastn, to GenBank, a comprehensive database of biological sequences. To search with an amino acid sequence, use blastp.
Before you begin, here are some helpful hints:
This series is not meant as a comprehensive description of the BLAST programs, merely a quick guide to help you get started. For more information about BLAST, see www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/BLAST
