Though the second approach will only work if you are dealing with protein-coding sequences, it is more sensitive and accurate than the first. In this example, we will search for relatives of the cytochrome b gene of the Durango night lizard (Xantusia extorris). We start by selecting protein blast from the BLAST home page and entering the accession number, ABY48155, into the query box. If your sequence is not available as a protein sequence, you will need to translate it. html). ’’ We will choose the ‘‘Reference proteins (refseq_protein)’’ database, which is more highly curated and non-redundant (per gene) than the default nr database.
