MultiGeneBlast

Online

Performs homology searches with operons or gene clusters as basic units, instead of single genes. MultiGeneBlast allows users to get a better understanding of the function, evolutionary history, and practical applications of such genomic regions. It is fully equipped with applications to generate search databases from GenBank or from the user’s own sequence data. MultiGeneBlast provides a general search tool that can be exploited in a wide range of comparative genomics studies of homologous multigene units, by expert bioinformaticians and experimental biologists alike.
