I would like to convert USEARCH to open-source. The challenges are to find funding and/or
credible volunteers to support further development and maintenance. If you have any ideas or
would like to contribute, please contact me.
High-throughput search and clustering
USEARCH is a unique sequence analysis tool with
thousands of users world-wide. USEARCH offers search and clustering
algorithms that are often orders of magnitude faster than BLAST.
Improved productivity and insights
USEARCH combines many different algorithms into
a single package with outstanding documentation and support. This cuts
your learning curve, reduces the number of steps you need to take for
a given task, and slashes compute times. USEARCH will encourage you to
explore your data, enabling new insights and suggesting new analyses
that you might not have tried with slower tools.
Free for most users
Licenses to use 32-bit USEARCH are offered at
no charge for all users, including commercial.
You can download the
32-bit version here.
