Next: Citing SCANPS
SCANPS is a program for comparing a protein sequence to a database of
sequences. It has the following features:
- Full Smith-Waterman style searching with a single sequence.
- Multiple domain matches found against each database sequence.
- Iterative profile searching similar in concept to PSI-BLAST, but with
full dynamic programming on each cycle for additional sensitivity.
- Significance of matches calculated ``on the fly'' for each search.
- Efficient implementation on Intel CPUs by using MMX and SSE instructions.
- Output of each search as pairwise alignments and multiple alignments.
