NCBI BLAST (REST)

By | September 22, 2011

NCBI BLAST is a sequence similarity search program. The emphasis is to find regions of sequence similarity, which will yield functional and evolutionary clues about the structure and function of the query sequence. WU-BLAST and NCBI BLAST are distinctly different software packages, although they have a common lineage for some portions of their code, so the services do their work differently, obtain different results and offer different features.
