Database management in ThermoBLAST CE is customizable and easy which solves the issues associated with the curation and storage of local databases. Users have the option to use pre-formatted playlists from the Most Popular Playlists, or they can access previous playlists that they’ve already assembled for previous jobs. All public playlists are searchable and they can be merged with a user’s existing playlist or a user may choose to create their own playlist using publically available data. There is no theoretical maximum capacity for playlist assembly as the computational power and storage capacity of cloud computing allows the user to query as many sequences against a playlist of any size.
