Sequence alignment is a commonly used tool in bioinformatics for different applications. In order to be able to increase the performance of these tools (e.g. BLAST and the different versions of it) in terms of execution time, the Software Development Group at Genetwister created a BLAST based implementation which can run in a Spark cluster using HDFS as file system support.
