A set of programs, used to perform fast similarity searches. Nucleotide sequences can be compared with nucleotide sequences in a database using BLASTN, for example. Complex statistics are applied to judge the significance of each match. Reported sequences may be homologous to, or related to the query sequence. The BLASTP program is used to search a protein database for a match against a query protein sequence. There are several other flavours of BLAST.
Heuristic homology search algorithm
asic ocal lignment earch ool. ( Altschul et al.) A sequence comparison algorithm optimized for speed used to search sequence databases for optimal local alignments to a query. The initial search is done for a word of length "W" that scores at least "T" when compared to the query using a substitution matrix. Word hits are then extended in either direction in an attempt to generate an alignment with a score exceeding the threshold of "S". The "T" parameter dictates the speed and sensitivity of the search. For additional details, see one of the BLAST tutorials ( Query or BLAST) or the narrative guide to BLAST.
a suffix which denotes a less differentiated precursor cell. It may or may not retain mitotic capability. Examples: myeloblast (white cell precursor), osteoblast (bone cell precursor).
(blast) Immature blood cell
an immature cell derived from a stem cell
A really great party or time. British origin? "We had a blast at the Stones concert!"
The Balloon-borne Large Aperture Submillimeter Telescope (BLAST) is a submillimeter telescope that hangs from a high altitude balloon. It has a 2 meter primary mirror that directs light into bolometer arrays operating at 250, 350, and 500 µm. The project is being carried out by a multi-university consortium headed by the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Toronto which also includes Brown University, the University of Miami, the University of British Columbia, JPL, INAOE, and Cardiff University.
Blast is Ireland's largest alternative youth community and event promoter. It organises concerts in Athlone, Cork, Clare, Drogheda, Dundalk, Derry, Galway, Gorey, Kilkenny, Mullingar, Navan, Limerick, Sligo, Waterford, Thurles, and Swords.
A forcible stream of air from an orifice, as from a bellows, the mouth, etc. Hence: The continuous blowing to which one charge of ore or metal is subjected in a furnace; as, to melt so many tons of iron at a blast.
The sound made by blowing a wind instrument; strictly, the sound produces at one breath.
To blow; to blow on a trumpet.
acceleration being stopped in pedals, outside the chair to mount, throwing in the handlebars, moving the side of bici alongside.
BLAST stands for Building Leaders And Sharing Talents. We have our district competition on two weekends in March and those who qualify go on to Mount Vernon for the Regionals. Teens can participate in athletics and different academic categories as well. Look for more information around November or December.
