Introduction to BLAST

The Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) is a combination statistical and mathematical equation created by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). The BLAST suite offers a set of tools for identifying areas of similarity between various kinds of genomic and protein sequences as well as specialized BLAST tools for Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), comparing sequences, identifying mutations, sequences binding molecules such as drugs and more.
