I tried to run a blast search with a small nucleic acid patterns against
all the database. The patterns is 9 nucleotide long with a degenerated
base (tagaytaga). The output produce no match but i know that there is
at least 9 sequence that have the patterns. I tried the same thing using
fasta and again no match were found.
I suspect that my pattern is not long enought but i dont understand why
I can force the program to find a match.
What's the best way to do that kind of search?
