3. Description tab

This default tab shows a list of titles (definition lines) for the sequences matched in the database. Click the title to go to the alignment. To the right are columns for the organism and BLAST statistics for the match. The smaller the E-value (statistic representing the uniqueness of the match in the current database) the more “significant” the match is.

The Accession is a link to the specific record in the NCBI sequence databases (nucleotide or protein). These columns are customizable and sortable under the Select Columns pull down.
