I started a topic yesterday in Bioinfo regarding NCBI blastN, i would like you all to be aware that when blasting against bacterial genome.. you will no longer get the Gene ID/ Genebank associated with the subject sequence that your query is most related to. No more associated gene.. this definitely makes life harder.
It still works for BlastP. For those involved in bacterial genetic and novel gene isolation .. i think our lives have just been rendered slightly difficult. You still could get somewhat info on the gene by turning on the " CDS feature" it will help out abit. In order to download the FASTA sequence, we have to open up the entire genome of the bacteria and key in the region that we would like to get info on instead of clicking on the "linkout" provided last time.
Let me know if any of you are experiencing the similar situation.
