IgBLAST 1.7.0 release
A new version of IgBLAST is now available on FTP, with the following new features:
- Specify whether overlapping nucleotides at VDJ junctions are allowed in matching V, D, and J genes.
- Set a custom J gene mismatch penalty
- Report the CDR3 start and stop positions in the sub-region table
- Use alignment length instead of percent identity as the tie-breaker for hits with identical blast scores, improving accuracy in the V, D, J gene assignment.
IgBLAST was developed at the NCBI to facilitate the analysis of immunoglobulin and T cell receptor variable domain sequences.
Sequence Viewer 3.21
Sequence Viewer 3.21 has several new features, improvements and bug fixes, including improved track hiding, and parameters to define pile-up praph size in BAM files (demo).For a full list of changes, see the Sequence Viewer release notes.
Sequence Viewer is a graphical view of sequences and color-coded annotations on regions of sequences stored in the Nucleotide and Protein databases.
