DNASIS MAX has the ability to search for homologous sequences to your sequence with BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool). BLAST finds regions of local similarity between sequences. The program compares nucleotide or protein sequences to sequence databases and calculates the statistical significance of matches. BLAST can be used to infer functional and evolutionary relationships between sequences as well as help identify members of gene families.
The following procedure guides you through utilizing BLAST against NCBI’s sequence databases.
