Hi all,

I need to get 100 downstream of the nucleotide sequence from aligned results of the web blast query.

Is there any way to get the required sequence from NCBI?

The alignments listed in results of your web blast should have a start/end coordinates. Query Start/End is the coordinate of the input sequence that aligned, Subject Start/End is the coordinate of the sequence you aligned to.

If you click on one of the results, it should take you to the information page of that result. Using the top left corner selection box, you can change the result page to a fasta file, giving you the sequence of the result.

Using the subject start/end coordinates, you can find the downstream region that you want.

say your result was downloaded as a XML file:

<!DOCTYPE BlastOutput PUBLIC "-//NCBI//NCBI BlastOutput/EN" "NCBI_BlastOutput.dtd">

the following XSLT stylesheet extracts every gi, downloads the nucleotide sequence using efetch and prints the context +/- 100pb for each Hsp:
