USEARCH 8.1.1861 / UCLUST / UBLAST – Sequence Search & Clustering

USEARCH 8.1.1861 / UCLUST / UBLAST

:: DESCRIPTION

UBLAST and USEARCH are algorithms designed to enable high-throughput, sensitive search of very large sequence databases.

UBLAST searches for local alignments, USEARCH for global alignments. UBLAST and USEARCH are orders of magnitude faster than BLAST for some applications.

UCLUST is a clustering algorithm that uses USEARCH as a subroutine to achieve exceptional high speed and sensitivity.
