This toolkit consists of a collection of libraries that can be used to run basic sequence analysis tasks. Routines for global alignment (LCS from Fragments, Edit Distance with Gaps), local alignment (approximata string matching with K mismateches or differences), and statistical analysis (Filter, Z-Score and Model Generation ) are included.

The routines are available in the form of C libraries and Perl modules. Moreover, a Perl/Tk graphical user interface is provided. If BioPerl (version 1.5.2) is installed, the GUI takes advantage of its sequence parsing capabilities.
