PLAST 1.0

:: DESCRIPTION

PLAST (Parallel Local Alignment Search Tool for Database Comparison) is an intensive bank sequence comparison with a parallel version of BLAST-like software.The algorithm exploits two key parallel features of existing and future microprocessors: the SIMD programming model (SSE instruction set) and the multithreading concept (multicore). Compared to multithreaded BLAST software, tests performed on an 8-processor server have shown speedup ranging from 3 to 6 with a similar level of accuracy.
