- BLAST can be done at high speed
- High speed BLAST is executed at high speed by doing NCBI BLAST on multiple servers of PC cluster. It is faster than NCBI BLAST on 1 node.
- Efficient calculation by dividing database
- In NCBI BLAST, if a large-scale database is referred, it is likely to become extremely slow because the memory utilization exceeds the memory capacity of the server. In high speed BLAST, it calculates efficiently and at high speed so that the reference database is divided to be stored in the memory of the server.
- Effect of speed-up by high speed BLAST
- The following table indicates that the computing time is shortened below the half compared with NCBI BLAST. However, it doesn't contain waiting time if a lot of jobs are requested at the same time. Moreover, it may change by the state of the server such as cache of databases.
