NCBI blast

Level of support

Tier 2 NSC has only limited experience with this software, but we will try to help as much as possible. We have ran some tests, for example, if the program comes with a test suite, but they may be far from exhaustive. We will try to install and test new versions, as soon as we can.

Please see the page describing our software support categories for more information.

Legacy NCBI blast suite for alignment of biological sequences, kept for backwards compatibility. Users are highly encouraged to use the newer blast+ instead.

See this NCBI announcement: Download BLAST Software and Databases.

The blast installations are generally maintained by Joel Hedlund. Please contact NSC Support if you have any questions or problems.
