BLAST - A Basic Local Alignment Search Tool

Blast, compiled from the source from http://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ is available on lisa.

  • Blast is available with the command:
    module load blast

NOTE: since the Blast software is data-intensive, it is necessary to copy the relevant data files and databases to $TMPDIR. Result files must be created in $TMPDIR, and copied to the home directory at the end of the job. See the section about filesystems on Lisa
