We’ve released a new version of IgBLAST, v1.12. This new version increases the allowed distance between V gene end and J gene start positions (from 90 bp to 150 bp) as well as between V gene end and D gene start positions (from 55 to 120 bp) to accommodate extremely long VDJ junctions found in some antibodies.
IgBLAST 1.12 uses the 1-based sequence coordinate system that reflects the change in the new AIRR Rearrangement Schema. Also, it includes fixes for minor bugs found in previous versions.
The new executables are available on the NCBI FTP site.
