BLAST from the PAST

Workflow preview
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.
