surendrk asked 2 months ago



Hi, I was wondering how often the blast databases (nt/nr/swissprot/uniprot) avaible at \”/cvmfs/ref.mugqic/genomes/blast_db/\” are updated? The time stam on these files are Jun 2018. Is it possible to update them quarterly? Thanks, Best, Surendra

Hi Surendra
At the moment there is no official schedule, but your suggestion is a good one. I’ll try and get the dbs updated manually in the next week or two and put in place a more regular update plan. I’ll update this thread when the new dbs are uploaded and available on cvmfs.
