Nucleotide Similarity Scanner NSimScan

Online

A tool for fast, sensitive and accurate DNA similarity search. Its targeted applications include phylogenomics, comparative and functional studies of non-coding sequences, contamination detection, etc. NSimScan outperforms industry standard tools in combined sensitivity, accuracy and speed, operating at sensitivity similar to BLAST, accuracy of ssearch and speed of MegaBLAST. It has a particular advantage when searching for moderately distant similarities (60-90% identity) on massive datasets, making it useful for large-scale comparative analyses of DNA sequences.
