Sequenceserver: A Modern Graphical User Interface for Custom BLAST Databases.

Mol Biol Evol 2019 12;36(12):2922-2924

School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, Queen Mary University of London, London, United Kingdom.

Comparing newly obtained and previously known nucleotide and amino-acid sequences underpins modern biological research. BLAST is a well-established tool for such comparisons but is challenging to use on new data sets. We combined a user-centric design philosophy with sustainable software development approaches to create Sequenceserver, a tool for running BLAST and visually inspecting BLAST results for biological interpretation. Sequenceserver uses simple algorithms to prevent potential analysis errors and provides flexible text-based and visual outputs to support researcher productivity. Our software can be rapidly installed for use by individuals or on shared servers.
