[…] ). an initial 23,414 gene models were identified in du054 and 22,573 in wa94.26. of these, 14,735 pairs of predicted gene models appear to be orthologous between the two genomes (reciprocal best-hit blastp, e value ≤ 1e-5). as a preliminary verification of these gene model builds, we identified orthologous counterparts to eight available phytophthora genomes with annotations [ p. infestans , p.

[…] gap/missing treat)., functional analyses were conducted on synechococcus by using kegg database v54 []. proteins in synechococcus were aligned against the protein sequences in kegg database by using blastp [] (e-value < 1.0e-10). the best hit of the query was assigned based on the e-value. for multiple best hits with the same e-value, alignment with the best sequence similarity was selected. […]

[…] thirty-five of the apc_jm3.2 orfs are predicted on the forward strand, while the remaining 22 orfs have a reverse orientation. forty-three orfs of apc_jm3.2 were assigned putative functions by blastp, while 11 of the remaining 14 orfs not assigned a blastp function were assigned a putative function by the uniprot database., the identification of an integrase on the genome of phage […]

[…] to use in subsequent multiple sequence alignments. the first criterion was to find homologs which shared greater than 70% of the queried coverage in their amino acid sequences as listed in a blastp search of the ncbi protein sequence database ( for the second criterion, we ensured that the searched homologs contained at least one catalytic or cell […]

[…] and laaidl2). these genes encode proteins with two striking features: (1) laaidl1 contains two tandem deaminase domains (fig. ), which resembles the structure of human apobec3b/d/f/g; and (2) in blastp searches using laaidl1 and laaidl2 as queries, avian and primate apobec1 and apobec3g proteins were amongst the top matches (tables  and ). as in sea urchins, laaidl1 and laaidl2 transcripts […]
