QuickBLASTP adds pre-processing to BLAST search


quickblastp option under "Program Selection"

Figure 1. The QuickBLASTP option is available under “Program Selection”.

QuickBLASTP, an accelerated version of BLASTP, adds a new pre-processing step to the non-redundant (nr) protein database. In a matter of seconds, QuickBLASTP will find approximately 97% of the database sequences with 70% or more identity to your query and around 98% of the database sequence with 80% or more identity to your query.

Currently, QuickBLASTP will only accept searches with a total query length less than 10,000 residues. You may only search the nr database with QuickBLASTP.
