I am trying to narrow down the possible search criteria from an RNASeq experiment. I already have the cds sequences so I took these and used Blast+ program to blast the data against itself to find sequences that were the same.
From what I have read the E Value is based on the database size. My database only has ~27,000 sequences in it, does this mean that only exceptionally low E values will be relevant to me? Are there any other criteria I should search for before writing the program to eliminate similar sequences?
