WSNCBIBlast Clients

Important

On Monday 28th March 2011 the WSNCBIBlast service, used by these clients, was decommissioned and replaced by the following services:

The service documentation and clients below are historical and provided solely for reference purposes.

Description

NCBI BLAST is a sequence similarity search program. The emphasis is to find regions of sequence similarity, which will yield functional and evolutionary clues about the structure and function of the query sequence. WU-BLAST and NCBI BLAST are distinctly different software packages, although they have a common lineage for some portions of their code, so the two services do their work differently, obtain different results and offer different features.

For more information about this tool see:
