MPsrch --True Smith and Waterman algorithm search tool

What you can do:
Find similar sequences to a query protein sequence from SWISS-PROT using an exhaustive true Smith and Waterman algorithm.
  • MPsrch is a biological sequence comparison tool that implements the true Smith and Waterman algorithm.
  • It allows an rigorous search in a reasonable computational time.
  • MPsrch utilizes an exhaustive algorithm, which is recognized as the most sensitive sequence comparison method available, whereas Blast and Fasta utilize a heuristic one.
  • As a consequence, MPsrch is capable of identifying hits in cases where Blast and Fasta fail and also reports fewer false-positive hits.
  • sequence comparison tool
  • sequence alignment tool
  • sequence similarity search tool
