ViroBLAST is a stand-alone BLAST web interface for nucleotide and amino acid sequence similarity searches. It extends the utility of BLAST to query against multiple sequence databases and user sequence datasets, and provides a friendly output to easily parse and navigate BLAST results. ViroBLAST is readily useful for all research areas that require BLAST functions and is available online and as a downloadable archive for independent installation.
