Speeding up sequence alignment across the tree of life

A sequence search engine for a new era of conservation genomics

A team of researchers from the Max Planck Institutes of Developmental Biology in Tübingen and the Max Planck Computing and Data Facility in Garching develops new search capabilities that will allow to compare the biochemical makeup of different species from across the tree of life. Its combination of accuracy and speed is hitherto unrivalled. Their results are being published in Nature Methods on April 7.
