BLAST | Basic local alignment search tool

Allows to align query sequences against those present in a selected target database. BLAST is a suite of programs, provided by NCBI, which can be used to quickly search a sequence database for matches to a query sequence. The software provides an access point for these tools to perform sequence alignment on the web. The set of BLAST command-line applications is organized in a way that groups together similar types of searches in one application.
