Cox15-Blast is a customized version of ViroBLAST particularly for blasting cox15-related sequences. User can search potential cox15-related sequences by using tblastn against two jakobids' transcriptomes. Currently only two protein queries (cox15-1 from A. godoyi, and cox15-2 from Homo sapiens) are allowed to perform the searches. Any new query request for searching two jakobids' transcriptomes could be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
ViroBLAST in Dr. Mullins Lab at University of Washington was established to provide sequence comparison and contamination checking on viral research. It is readily useful for all research areas that require BLAST functions and is available as a downloadable archive for independent installation. ViroBLAST implements the NCBI C++ Toolkit BLAST command line applications referred as the BLAST+ applications.
With the common features of other BLAST tools, the ViroBLAST provides features like:
