EST and Protein Alignments
WU-BlastX was used to map proteins from metazoan taxa onto the Ixodes scapularis genome. The datasets used were: Ixodes and chelicerate proteins from UniProtKB, Daphnia pulex and Drosophila proteins from Ensembl Metazoa, mosquito proteins from VectorBase, and metazoan proteins from UniProtKB for species that did not fall into any of the previous categories. (Example: DS702749:1-130514).
