Nucleotide Similarity Search

This tool provides sequence similarity searching against nucleotide databases using the FASTA suite of programs. FASTA provides a heuristic search with a nucleotide query. TFASTX and TFASTY translate the DNA database for searching with a protein query. Optimal searches are available with SSEARCH (local), GGSEARCH (global) and GLSEARCH (global query, local database).
