Special Issue Description

The Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) tracks down locales of similarity between sequences. The program analyzes nucleotide or protein arrangements and works out the measurable meaning of matches. BLAST can be utilized to gather practical and evolutionary connections between groupings as well as assist with recognizing individuals from gene families. The first BLAST program utilized a protein “question” sequence to examine a protein sequence data set. A form working on nucleotide question sequence and a nucleotide sequence information base before long followed. The presentation of a middle-of-the-road layer in which nucleotide sequences are converted into their related protein sequence as per a predefined hereditary code permits cross-examinations among nucleotide and protein sequences. Specific variations permit quick quests of nucleotide information bases with exceptionally enormous inquiry sequence sets of groupings. Both the independent and web adaptation of BLAST is accessible from the National Center for Biotechnology Information ( There are several types of BLAST searches: BLASTn, BLASTx, tBLASTn, and BLASTp. The web variant gives searches of the total genomes of Homo sapiens as well as those of many models’ life forms, including mouse, rodent, organic product fly, and Arabidopsis thaliana, permitting Shoot arrangements to be found in a full genomic context .

Manuscript Submission information

Manuscripts should be submitted online via the manuscript Engine. Once you register on APID, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline.
All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a Double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for the submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
