Parasight is a program for visualizing and analyzing biological pairwise alignments. The program was initially designed to analyze the thousands of large segmental duplications found within the human genome. However, parasight’s simple unassuming data model and flexible formatting allows for the display of virtually any pairwise alignment as well as formatting based on any ancillary data. It is most often used in the Eichler lab, to quickly analyze everyday BLAST searches of genomic sequence.
