Reference sequence

The reference sequence of α-Galactosidase A that will be used in the following tasks was obtained from Swissprot P06280.

>gi|4504009|ref|NP_000160.1| alpha-galactosidase A precursor [Homo sapiens]

Sequence searches


We searched the "big80" database with Blast with the following command:

blastall -p blastp -d /mnt/project/pracstrucfunc12/data/big/big_80 -i P06280.fasta -m 0 -o blastsearch_default.out -v 700 -b 700
./extract_ids_blast.sh blastsearch_default.out
perl ../download-annotation.pl blastsearch_default_ids.txt
perl ../compare_GO_terms.pl P06280 blastsearch_default_ids_GOterms.tsv
perl parse_blast.pl blastsearch_default.out

The run took about 2 minutes (see section Time)

HHblits / HHsearch

We searched the "big80" database with HHblits using the default settings and also with the maximum number of possible iterations (8) with the following commands:

time hhblits -i ../P06280.fasta -d /mnt/project/pracstrucfunc12/data/hhblits/uniprot20_current -e 0.003 -o hhblits_default.out -E 0.003  -z 700
./extract_ids_hhblits.sh hhblits_default.out
perl ../download-annotation.pl hhblits_default_ids.txt
perl ../compare_GO_terms.pl P06280 hhblits_default_ids_GOterms.tsv
perl parse_hhblits.pl hhblits_default.out

time hhblits -i ../P06280.fasta -d /mnt/project/pracstrucfunc12/data/hhblits/uniprot20_current -e 0.003 -o hhblits_n8_neu.out -E 0.003 -n 8 -z 800 -b 800
./extract_ids_hhblits.sh hhblits_n8_neu.out
perl ../download-annotation.pl hhblits_n8_neu_ids.txt
perl ../compare_GO_terms.pl P06280 hhblits_n8_neu_ids_GOterms.tsv
perl parse_hhblits.pl hhblits_n8_neu.out

R CMD BATCH hist_hhblits.R

The first HHblits run took about 2.5 minutes, the second one about 16 minutes (see section Time).


We evaluated the time the programs ran with the command "time"

Method Parameter Time
Blast v = 700 b = 700, v = 700 1m53.944s
HHBlits default 2m19.519s
HHBlits n = 8 16m7.754s
