Sequence Similarity Search (SSS) is a method of searching sequence databases by using alignment to a query sequence. By statistically assessing how well database and query sequences match one can infer homology and transfer information to the query sequence.
|FASTA||Fast protein or nucleotide comparison using the FASTA suite. Includes Smith and Waterman local-local (SSEARCH), global-local (GLSEARCH) and global-global (GGSEARCH) alignment searches.|
|FASTM||Peptide fragment searches using the FASTF, FASTM or FASTS programs from the FASTA suite.|
|NCBI BLAST+||Compare a sequence with those contained in nucleotide and protein databases using NCBI BLAST.|
|PSI-BLAST||Position Specific Iterative BLAST (PSI-BLAST), guided mode|
|PSI-Search||Iterative Smith and Waterman using a PSI-BLAST strategy|
