FASTA (pronounced FAST-AYE) is a suite of programs for searching nucleotide or protein databases with a query sequence. FASTA itself performs a local heuristic search of a protein or nucleotide database for a query of the same type. FASTX and FASTY translate a nucleotide query for searching a protein database.

Optimal searches are available with the programs SSEARCH (local), GGSEARCH (global) and GLSEARCH (global query against local database).
