MOLE-BLAST is a new tool to classify multiple query sequences and discover their relationship to each other. This tool provides a taxonomic context for the queries. First, MOLE-BLAST groups the query sequences by locus. Second, it performs a BLAST database search to identify each query's nearest neighbors. Third, it computes a multiple alignment for each locus, including query sequences and their nearest neighbors. Finally, MOLE-BLAST presents the result of its analysis as phylogenetic tree for each locus.
