biotools: last

LAST finds & aligns related regions of sequences. It is designed for moderately large data (e.g. genomes, DNA reads, proteomes). It's especially good at: finding rearrangements and recombinations; finding DNA-versus-protein related regions; unusual data like AT-rich DNA; sensitive DNA-DNA search.

You need a conda-compatible package manager (currently either micromamba, mamba, or conda) and the Bioconda channel already activated (see set-up-channels).

While any of above package managers is fine, it is currently recommended to use either micromamba or mamba (see here for installation instructions). We will show all commands using mamba below, but the arguments are the same for the two others.

Given that you already have a conda environment in which you want to have this package, install with:

   mamba install last

and update with::

   mamba update last

To create a new environment, run:

mamba create --name myenvname last

with myenvname being a reasonable name for the environment (see e.g. the mamba docs for details and further options).

Alternatively, use the docker container:

   docker pull<tag>

(see `last/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
