The FASTA programs find regions of local or global similarity between
Protein or DNA sequences, either by searching Protein or DNA databases,
or by identifying local duplications within a sequence. Other
programs provide information on the statistical significance of an
alignment. Like BLAST, FASTA can be used to infer functional and
evolutionary relationships between sequences as well as help identify
members of gene families.
* Protein
- Protein-protein FASTA
- Protein-protein Smith-Waterman (ssearch)
- Global Protein-protein (Needleman-Wunsch) (ggsearch)
- Global/Local protein-protein (glsearch)
- Protein-protein with unordered peptides (fasts)
- Protein-protein with mixed peptide sequences (fastf)
* Nucleotide
- Nucleotide-Nucleotide (DNA/RNA fasta)
- Ordered Nucleotides vs Nucleotide (fastm)
- Un-ordered Nucleotides vs Nucleotide (fasts)
* Translated
- Translated DNA (with frameshifts, e.g. ESTs)
vs Proteins (fastx/fasty)
- Protein vs Translated DNA (with frameshifts)
- Peptides vs Translated DNA (tfasts)
* Statistical Significance
- Protein vs Protein shuffle (prss)
- DNA vs DNA shuffle (prss)
