TremaBLAST - Map your sequence to our Trematode protein database collection

Blast your sequence versus Trematode gene and transcript collections

TremaBLAST is used to search for your sequence(s) of interest amongst a user defined set of protein sequences representing the genesets of our hosted trematode organisms (that have genesets available). Databases may include the protein products of predicted and/or final genes from draft and/or finished genomic assemblies. Where multiple isoforms were predicted, the TremaBLAST database will only utilize the longest isoform per gene loci.

Gene names reported can be looked up directly in TremaGene, and are also detailed in the TremaGene FAQ.

A Note on TremaBLAST

The TremaBLAST pages use WU-BLAST 2.0 (Gish, W. 1994-2002). Washington University BLAST (WU-BLAST) version 2.0 is a powerful software package for gene and protein identification, using sensitive and selective similarity searches of protein and nucleotide sequence databases. The feature list for WU-BLAST 2.0 is large, please visit for more information on this software package

Setup your BLAST here:

Please enter your sequence here (must be in FASTA format)

Select all the species you wish to include in your blast database from the menu below. Also be sure to enter your query sequence in the window above. Next, choose the version of BLAST you want to run, and select whether or not to filter and mask your query. And be sure to enter your email address in the appropriate text box. Then finally press the BLAST Search button and your job will begin.
