BlastStation2 is an All-in-One solution for BLAST searches.  BLAST is one of the most popular and widely used Bioinformatics applications.  BlastStation2 supports NCBI-Blast, WU-Blast2, and standalone local Blast searches with the same easy-to-use interface.  BlastStation automatically detect and utilizes multi core processors for fast local Blast searches.  For example, Macintosh or PC with Core 2 Duo processor performs local BLAST searches 50 % faster than before.  BlastStation is very effective interface program that makes BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool) faster and easier to use.
BlastStation reads and splits whole sets of multi-FASTA data, and then continuously submits each set of data to the BLAST server.  Search results are displayed in both bar graph and summary table format with full Definitions.  Summary tables can be exported in CSV format and transferred to a spreadsheet program.  Perhaps more importantly, BlastStation makes it simple for users to organize search results.    Download BlastStation now (a 14-day free trial is available) and experience the power of BlastStation.


BlastStation2 is available for Mac OS X and Windows. 
Supported Mac: 10.4 Tiger, 10.5 Leopard, 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Maverics, and 10.10 Yosemite.
Supported Windows: Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.1.
  • I use BlastStation-Local to conveniently search large RNA-seq transcriptomic data files obtained from tissues of non-model species. The software has made it a breeze to match unknown sequences to a known sequence from another species. The GUI is very user friendly and I have not experienced any problems with the software crashing. The use of BlastStation-local has saved me hours of time.

  • I've used Blaststation mainly to probe RNA-Seq data, but also used it to search genome sequence data. I find it very convenient to be able to quickly create a database from a large transcriptome fasta file or a genome sequence file, which can then be used to blast against with either a single sequence or a fasta file of multiple sequences. The graphic output is also visually helpful.

  • My laboratory builds genealogical trees based on analysis of DNA sequences to conduct research on evolution. When we gather new DNA sequences, it is necessary for us to make a quick comparison to known sequences. BlastStation 2 makes this process and displays results in a clear visual interface. In addition, the staff responded to my questions and requests promptly and extremely thoroughly. I look forward to continuing to use this user friendly tool as an integral part of my laboratory.
