FASTA is a DNA and protein sequence alignment software package first described (as FASTP) by David J. Lipman and William R. Pearson in 1985. 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.
