MycoBank: An on-line database aimed as a service to the mycological and scientific community by documenting mycological nomenclatural novelties (new names and combinations) and associated data, for example descriptions and illustrations. Pairwise sequence alignments and polyphasic identifications of fungi and yeasts against curated references databases are proposed. http://www.mycobank.org
BLAST: The Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) finds regions of local similarity between sequences. The program compares nucleotide or protein sequences to sequence databases and calculates the statistical significance of matches and helps to find functional and evolutionary relationships between sequences.
