WU-Blast is the former Washington University BLAST now provided by the Advanced Biocomputing, LLC.

  • most sensitive, fastest and flexible core BLAST engine — target your searches easier and get better results faster
  • faster, easier and more robust database management — faster updates leave more time to analyze; robust error checking identifies problems sooner; flexible identifiers improve pipeline design and management
  • long-term consistent behavior—drop-in upgrades for over 15 years—avoids wholesale retraining of staff and retuning of analysis pipelines, reduces errors and saves time
  • up to twice as fast as NCBI BLAST, yet more sensitive and robust
  • no special/expensive hardware requirements or usage restrictions
