Symbiodinium (SYM) Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST)

Welcome to The Santos Lab implementation of the Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) (Altschul et al. 1990, Journal of Molecular Biology 215:403-410) from NCBI. If you are unfamiliar with BLAST, click on the "?" button (upper right-hand corner) of the SYM-BLAST web page (link below) for a tutorial on the program(s). The databases utilized in these BLAST searches are Symbiodinium and/or dinoflagellate-specific and updated on a monthly basis. The databases are constructed from all Symbiodinium/dinoflagellate sequences available from NCBI at the beginning of each month.  These searches are being run at the AU Dept. of Biological Sciences. Thus, once a search is started, results are returned nearly immediately. In addition, the results are dynamically linked to their original accessions at NCBI (a.k.a. GenBank). NOTE: sharp increases and decreases in the sizes of the databases (i.e., DinoNuc and SymbioNuc) are typically due to the release of sequences from EST projects and how NCBI indexes those data.

 

As of Oct 2014, the number of sequences in the databases are:

Symbiodinium (nucleotide):

410,687

Dinoflagellate (nucleotide):

1,523,688

Symbiodinium (amino acid):

1,269

Dinoflagellate (amino acid):

6,262
