Tip of the Week: TARGeT

target_thumbToday’s tip is on a TARGeT. TARGeT is, as the the paper’s title in the this year’s NAR’s issue states, “a web-based pipeline for retrieving and characterizing gene and transposable element families from genomic sequences.” There are several things you can do at TARGeT. Using BLAST, PHI BLAST, MUSCLE and TreeBest ,the main function of TARGeT is  to quickly obtain gene and transposon families from a query sequence. The tip today is a quick intro to the tool and a search on an R1 non-LTR transposon.
