Taking the amino acid sequence search as an example, if we want to blast a T cell receptor CDR3 sequence(“CASSDGTGEAEAFF”) specific to Influenza antigen HA255 which were collected in TBAdb, we should choose “BLASTP” (If a nucleotide is interested, please choose “BLASTN”) tool:
The 1st step: Input the sequence of your interest, which is “CASSDGTGEAEAFF” (You can also submit your query sequences with a fasta file). Please note to choose “Short BLASTP” task because the most of the sequences in PIRD are short.
The 2nd step: Select PIRD as the target database.
The 3rd step: Select the BLAST parameters as needed, or leave them as default.
The 4th step: Submit BLASTP and wait for the result.
If you have logged in the database, you will also receive an e-mail notification:
The 5th step: Check and download your results. In the detailed information, you can either download all sequences or select and download interested ones.
