UNLABELLED: BEAUTY (BLAST Enhanced Alignment Utility) is an enhanced version of the BLAST database search tool that facilitates identification of the functions of matched sequences. Three recent improvements to the BEAUTY program described here make the enhanced output (1) available for DNA queries, (2) available for searches of any protein database, and (3) more up-to-date, with periodic updates of the domain information.AVAILABILITY: BEAUTY searches of the NCBI and EMBL non-redundant protein sequence databases are available from the BCM Search Launcher Web pages (http://gc.bcm.tmc. edu:8088/search-launcher/launcher.html). BEAUTY Post-Processing of submitted search results is available using the BCM Search Launcher Batch Client (version 2.6) (ftp://gc.bcm.tmc. edu/pub/software/search-launcher/).SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Example figures are available at http://dot.bcm.tmc. edu:9331/papers/beautypp.htmlCONTACT: (kworley,culpep)
