The NCBI Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) finds regions of local similarity between sequences. The program compares a nucleotide or protein sequence database to an input set of sequences and calculates the statistical significance of each match. BLAST can be used to infer functional and evolutionary relationships between sequences as well as help identify members of gene families.

Regular BLAST includes five programs:

blastn - nucleotide sequence against nucleotide database
blastp - amino acid sequence against protein databaseStrongylocentrotus purpuratus
blastx - nucleotide (six-frame translation) sequence against protein database;
tblastn - protein sequence against nucleotide database (dynamically translated in all six reading frames).
tblastx - nucleotide (six-frame translation) sequence against nucleotide database (six-frame translations).
