PLAST v2.3.1 – Parallel Local Alignment Search Tool for Database Comparison

PLAST v2.3.1

:: 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.

NETAL – Global Alignment of Protein-protein Interaction Networks

NETAL

:: DESCRIPTION

NETAL (network aligner) is a software for the global alignment of protein-protein interaction networks. It uses a greedy method, based on the alignment scoring matrix, which is derived from both biological and topological information of input networks to find the best global network alignment.

Syntenator 2 – Multiple Gene Order Alignments with a Gene-specific Scoring Function

Syntenator 2

:: DESCRIPTION

Syntenator represents genomes and alignments thereof as partial order graphs (POGs). These POGs are aligned by a dynamic programming approach employing a gene-specific scoring function. The scoring function reflects the level of protein sequence similarity for each possible gene pair. Our method consistently defines larger homologous regions in pairwise gene order alignments than nucleotide-level comparisons. Our method is superior to methods that work on predefined homology gene sets (as implemented in Blockfinder). Syntenator successfully reproduces 80% of the EnsEMBL man-mouse conserved syntenic blocks. The full potential of our method becomes visible by comparing remotely related genomes and multiple genomes. Gene order alignments potentially resolve up to 75% of the EnsEMBL 1:many orthology relations and 27% of the many:many orthology relations.

SnS-Align – Alignment of Distantly related Proteins

SnS-Align

:: DESCRIPTION

SnS-Align (Structure and Sequence Alignment) is a tool developed in perl, used to align the protein sequences by combining sequence and structure information at an instance. Given a protein sequence of an organism, the tool is used to identify its homologue(s) in the evolutionarily distant organisms, which might not be found from either sequence alone or structure alone comparisons.
