To execute annotation, it is necessary to create a database of nucleic acid sequences or amino acid sequences with annotations added.
IMC has a function to automatically generate a database for Blast search simply by loading the genome sequence.
This function can be used to annotate unknown genomes of closely related species.
A function of generating a large database is also implemented.
The CreateDB function generates a database for local blast search using a file of SuperKingdom that can be downloaded from NCBI and others.
The search database can generate both nucleic acid sequences and amino acid sequences databases.
These files are very large and numerous. When searching, you can join many generated databases and use them as one database name.
It is also possible to build a database on an external server so that it can be searched via the net.
