BASIC LOCAL ALIGNMENT SEARCH TOOL (BLAST) In the last chapter, we learnt how to use pair-wise BLAST to search for relationships between a large number of proteins. We used default parameters such as the BLOSUM62 substitution matrix, open gap (5) and extension gap (2) penalties, word size (11), etc. to run the program. We will now learn about these different variables and how they can be manipulated to alter the search. Finally, to illustrate the concepts we learned, we wil…
