Sequence search tools for metagenomics

VSEARCH supports DNA sequence searching, clustering, chimera detection, dereplication, pairwise alignment, shuffling, subsampling, sorting and masking. The tool takes advantage of parallelism in the form of SIMD vectorization as well as multiple threads to perform accurate alignments at high speed. VSEARCH uses an optimal global aligner (full dynamic programming Needleman-Wunsch).


Install the latest version of vsearch as follows:

guix install vsearch

Or install a particular version:

guix install vsearch@2.9.1

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
