user guide for FASTA tools
The FASTA programs find regions of local or global similarity between Protein or DNA sequences, either by searching Protein or DNA databases, or by identifying local duplications within a sequence. Other programs provide information on the statistical significance of an alignment. Like BLAST, FASTA can be used to infer functional and evolutionary relationships between sequences as well as help identify members of gene families.
The use of the package's many binaries and the equally representated conceptual approaches towards sequence analyses are summarised in this PDF.
