BLAST
Submitted by Nobody; posted on Thursday, August 21, 2003
Hello; Does anyone have any statistical data on: 1. the number of web sites world-wide providing BLAST or BLAST-like searches? 2. The number of bioinformaticists in the US and rest of world? 3. No of people using such search services? NCBI BLAST gest about 100,000 search requests/day. How many users does this represent on average? 4. Geographical distribution of bioinformaticists (US, Europe, UK, Japan, Canada, Australia, China, India, others?)? 5. Do any sites charge for searches? 6. How many algorithms have been written for local sequence alignment? Thanks Damon
