blast search
Metalife BLAST Search offers a fast way to find homologue sequences in the primary databases, sequence repositories and our client's proprietary data. For this purpose we employ the BLAST algorithm to perform a rapid scanning of nucleotide and protein databases that may be selected by the users.

The analysis of the homologue sequences found by the Metalife BLAST Search may be extended by computing their multiple alignments with ClustalW - a general purpose multiple sequence alignment program for nucleic acid or protein sequences. A multiple sequence alignment may reveal very important biological properties that remain hidden for a single pairwise alignment like transcription factor binding sites, protein domains etc.

The analysis with the application could be also extended by applying various other algorithms for sequence analysis, for example, to predict the presence and the location of signal peptide cleavage sites or to identify transmembrane helices in amino acid sequences from different organisms.
