Apple/Genentech BLAST is a popular open source biotechnology application used by life science researchers to find matches in DNA and protein sequences â€" a highly processor-intensive task. Developed by ACG in collaboration with Genentech, Inc. and the Stanford University Genetics Department, Apple/Genentech BLAST provides improved accuracy and speed over the standard NCBI BLAST, depending on search parameters such as the nucleotide match-length.
