- LAST finds similar regions between sequences. LAST can:
- Handle big sequence data, e.g:
- Compare two vertebrate genomes
- Align billions of DNA reads to a genome
- Indicate the reliability of each aligned column.
- Use sequence quality data properly.
- Compare DNA to proteins, with frameshifts.
- Compare PSSMs to sequences
- Calculate the likelihood of chance similarities between random sequences.
