SeedGeneDB provides five blast programs developed by NCBI (Altschul et al., 1997):

  blastp
    compares an amino acid query sequence against a protein sequence database
  blastn
    compares a nucleotide query sequence against a nucleotide sequence database
  blastx
    compares a nucleotide query sequence translated in all reading frames against a protein sequence database
  tblastn
    compares a protein query sequence against a nucleotide sequence database dynamically translated in all reading frames
  tblastx
    compares the six-frame translations of a nucleotide query sequence against the six-frame translations of a nucleotide sequence database. Please note that tblastx program cannot be used with the nr database on the BLAST Web page.

CDS/transcript and protein databases of Arabidopsis/rice seed-related genes and the following species with sequenced genomes are available on SeedGeneDB blast page.
  • Arabidopsis thaliana (TAIR annotation release 8)
  • Populus trichocarpa (v1.1)
  • Vitis vinifera (v1)
  • Oryza sativa (tigr version_6.0)
  • Sorghum bicolor (v1.0)
  • Selaginella moellendorffii (v1.0)
  • Physcomitrella patens (v1.1)
  • Volvox carteri (v1.0)
  • Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (v4.0)
  • Chlorella NC64A (v1.0)
  • Ostreococcus tauri
