The Basic Local Alignment Search Tool
finds regions of local similarity between sequences.
The program compares nucleotidic or protein sequences to sequence(s) stored in our database (PkGDB), and it computes the statistical significance of matches.
This interface allows the user to compare the sequences at the nucleic level (BlastN and BlastX) or proteic level (BlastP and tBlastN).
Pattern search uses EMBOSS tools
(6.6.0): fuzzpro (Protein pattern) and fuzznuc (Nucleic pattern).
