ngKLAST 4.5 is an all-in-one KLAST and BLAST workstation to produce quickly and efficiently high-quality results out of any kind of sequences: proteins, genes, reads, contigs, metagenomes, etc.
ngKLAST is a software providing convenient tools to analyze, align and compare genetics and genomics sequences, as well as metagenomics and next-generation sequencing data (NGS). ngKLAST includes the KLAST high-performance sequence similarity search tool, as well as easy ways to use BLAST services: local (i.e. on your computer), NCBI & EBI public servers and NCBI BLAST machine on Amazon Cloud:
With an easy-to-use workflow engine and a unified set of data viewers, the ngKLAST platform makes sequence databanks exploration accessible to every life science researcher. Sequence similarity search results can be enriched with biological classification data, such as NCBI Taxonomy, Gene Ontology and Enzyme.
ngKLAST can be used for:
|ngKLAST is available with two releases.|
|ngKLAST||The full edition of ngKLAST contains all the features above mentioned, especially a local KLAST engine as well as the Databank Manager. It is intended to be used on a desktop workstation.|
|ngKLAST-LE||ngKLAST-LE is the Light Edition of the software intended to be used for client-server installation in cooperation with the KLAST Server (see below). In this edition, ngKLAST-LE does not include a local KLAST engine, nor the Databank Manager since KLAST jobs are executed remotely using a KLAST Server.|
ngKLAST can be used with the KLAST Server (or KServer). This software enables the use of a dedicated computer infrastructure to run KLAST jobs (Klast comparison + data retrieval + data filtering). The server software is compatible with SGE/OGE and PBS-Pro jobs scheduling systems.
Here is a snapshot of the two main solutions available to deploy the KLAST server:
Korilog softwares are available for use on Linux, Mac and Windows platforms.
|All recent Linux systems should be fine Intel or AMD 64 bits processors|
|Windows Seven or above Intel or AMD 64 bits processors|
|MacOS-X 10.6 or above. Intel 64 bits processors.|
