Description

FASTA is a DNA and protein sequence alignment software package first described (as FASTP) by David J. Lipman and William R. Pearson in 1985.[1] Its legacy is the FASTA format which is now ubiquitous in bioinformatics.

Although there are a large number of programs in this package, they belong to three groups: (1) Traditional similarity searching programs: fasta36, fastx36, fasty36, tfastx36, tfasty36, ssearch36, ggsearch36, and glsearch36; (2) Programs for searching with short fragments: fasts36, fastf36, tfasts36, tfastf36, and fastm36; (3) A program for finding non-overlapping local alignments: lalign36. Programs that start with fast search protein databases, while tfast programs search translated DNA databases.
