Blast Information

Blast Information

This site has a nice collection of bioinformatic tutorials and information. There are tutorials on how to search Genbank , and how to use Blast and PSI-Blast. There is also a wealth of information on how to use and interpret Blast output, in addition to the tutorials. An extensive bioinformatics glossary with occasional links to high quality graphics help explain the terms and there is a reference section of recent informative articles on bioinformatics.
