Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA) is a fundamental aspect of Bioinformatics in order to identify the species, their functions, phylogeny, study the novel genes/ proteins, and so on. Multiple MSA tools are available with different specifications, which are based on the heuristic algorithm focusing on the speed rather than the accuracy.

In continuation with the series under “Do you Hyphy…”, this article envisages another very important analytical tool that Datamonkey web server provides us called EVOBLAST[1,2]. EVOBALST stands for Evolutionary Fingerprinting Analysis Results. Continue reading “EVOBLAST: Evolutionary Fingerprinting Analysis Module” »
What is predictive metagenomics profiling?
Recently, predictive metagenomics profiling (PMP) has been added to the microbial ecologist’s arsenal of strategies for probing microbial communities. Continue reading “Predictive metagenomics profiling: why, what and how ?” »
