BLAT | The BLAST-like alignment tool

Finds genomic sequences that match a protein or DNA sequence submitted by the user. BLAT is a very fast sequence alignment tool similar to BLAST typically used for searching similar sequences within the same or closely related species. It was developed to align millions of expressed sequence tags and mouse whole-genome random reads to the human genome at a higher speed. BLAT is commonly used to look up the location of a sequence in the genome or determine the exon structure of an mRNA, but expert users can run large batch jobs and make internal parameter sensitivity changes by installing command line it on Linux server.
