AARHUS, Denmark, & QUESTEMBERT, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CLC bio, a QIAGEN company (NASDAQ:QGEN)(FWB:QIA), today announced in collaboration with Korilog the release of the KLAST plug-in for CLC Genomics Workbench and CLC Main Workbench to accelerate the analysis of data from next-generation sequencing (NGS). KLAST is a new sequence similarity search tool which builds on a highly optimized implementation of the PLAST algorithm published in BMC Bioinformatics. KLAST is comparable to the current standard BLAST providing a similar accuracy, but can perform up to 25 times faster (with comparable search parameters and multicore threaded configuration). Another important KLAST benefit is that its algorithm is designed to compare two large sets of sequence databanks in a single run.
