The transcriptomic signature of different sexes in two protogynous hermaphrodites: Insights into the molecular network underlying sex phenotype in fish

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5824801
PMID: 29476120
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-21992-9

[…] mes, using BUSCO (Benchmarking Universal Single-Copy Orthologs) software that searches for highly conserved, near-universal, single copy orthologs. All BLAST searches were performed in parallel using NOBLAST program. […]


Complete depletion of primordial germ cells in an All female fish leads to Sex biased gene expression alteration and sterile All male occurrence

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4652418
PMID: 26582363
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-2130-z

[…] e databases nt (e-value < 0.00001), retrieving proteins with the highest sequence similarity with the given unigenes along with their protein functional annotations. Blastx was done in parallel using NOBlast. The output was used in Blast2GO, where gene ontology terms were retrieved and assigned to the transcripts []. The GO categorization of all DEGs covers three hierarchies: cellular component, m […]


Transcription analysis of neonicotinoid resistance in Mediterranean (MED) populations of B. tabaci reveal novel cytochrome P450s, but no nAChR mutations associated with the phenotype

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4647701
PMID: 26573457
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-2161-5

[…] g against low-abundance contigs was performed in order to maximize the detection of low expressed transcripts. All the BLAST ( searches were performed using NOBLAST program [] ( […]


Transcriptome Profiling and Genetic Study Reveal Amplified Carboxylesterase Genes Implicated in Temephos Resistance, in the Asian Tiger Mosquito Aedes albopictus

PLoS Negl Trop Dis
PMCID: 4441504
PMID: 26000638
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0003771

[…] annotation of the assembled transcripts, a blastx similarity search against the NCBI protein database nr (e-value threshold 10–6; keeping the top 20 hits) was performed using the parallel version of NOBLast []. Based on the blastx results (first best Hit, E-value <1e-10), genes of interest (ie detoxification genes, and genes encoding putative insecticide targets) were searched by a perl/SQL scrip […]


The sex specific transcriptome of the hermaphrodite sparid sharpsnout seabream (Diplodus puntazzo)

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4133083
PMID: 25099474
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-15-655

[…] annotate the assembled transcripts, we conducted a BLASTx similarity search against the NCBI protein database nr (e-value threshold 10-9; keeping the top ten hits). BLASTx was done in parallel using NOBlast []. The output was used in Blast2GO [] where gene ontology terms were retrieved and assigned to the transcripts (only the longest transcript was used per locus). The open reading frames (ORF) […]


BlaSTorage: a fast package to parse, manage and store BLAST results

Source Code Biol Med
PMCID: 3571973
PMID: 23363699
DOI: 10.1186/1751-0473-8-4

[…] as a user-friendly GUI to present information from BLAST output and can produce a tab-delimited text which can be used for downstream analysis. However, it does not return the alignments. The second, NOBLAST-JAMBLAST [], is more of a results manager than a feature-complete parser. Nevertheless, it shows a plethora of features including some statistical treatment of data. It uses the new tabular ou […]
