BLAST from the PAST

This example shows how to run the BLAST RESTful interfaces to submit BLAST searches inside of KNIME Analytics Platform. BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool) is a fast and robust algorithm that finds regions of similarity between biological sequences. In this example we use BLAST inside KNIME Analytics Platform to compare DNA extracted from a bone with a database of DNA sequences and find out which organism the bone belongs to.
