I am trying to make a phylogenetic tree from sequences obtained with blast. I have files that contains hundreds of fasta protein sequences which are all named like
>NP_567483.1 transcriptional regulator [Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1]. But if I use these files to do multiple alignments or phylogenetic trees using either ClustalX or MEGA7, every sequence are named after the first ID in the sequence names (for this example it would be
NP_567483.1), and what I want is to have the name of the strain instead (here
Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1) which is part of the sequence description.
So I don't know whether the softwares I'm using understand that the information between the [ ] is the species and that I just didn't find where to set this as the name or if I have to write some kind of a script to change my fasta files before. I'm really new to this and don't know much about it. Thanks for your help in advance. Julian
