Tips to use of NCBI BLAST and other NCBI tools
The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) provides one of the most extensive sets of web-based tools for biological research. These tools are indispensable when planning genomics experiments, including for qPCR, NGS, and CRISPR.
In this presentation, Dr Matt McNeill takes a practical look at getting started with the wealth of NCBI tools, and shares some relevant tips to help you sift through the tools and options that we regularly use.
In particular, he focuses on commonly adjusted parameters that will allow you to more effectively use the powerful NCBI Basic Local Alignment Algorithm Tool (BLAST) to identify off-target hybridization/annealing events. Dr McNeill also covers practical examples using NCBI tools to design assays.
