 The [[http://​qcbs.ca/​wiki/​blast|BLAST]] program and its specialized derivative programs (Primer-BLAST,​ conserved domains, vector contamination,​ Align two sequences, Global Sequence Alignment Tool, WGS sequences) may some of the most widely used tools in bioinformatics. The BLAST algorithm ((Altschul S, Madden T, Schaffer A, Zhang J, Zhang Z, Miller W, Lipman D (1997) Gapped BLAST and PSI-BLAST: a new generation of protein database search programs. Nucleic Acids Research 25:​3389-3402)) is optimized for speed and is used to search protein and DNA databases for sequence similarities. ​ The [[http://​qcbs.ca/​wiki/​blast|BLAST]] program and its specialized derivative programs (Primer-BLAST,​ conserved domains, vector contamination,​ Align two sequences, Global Sequence Alignment Tool, WGS sequences) may some of the most widely used tools in bioinformatics.
