I am looking for BLAST (preferably gapped-LAST and PSI-BLAST) tutorials
or teaching resources or detailed reviews. I have taught these
algorithms to some undergraduate students, but the discussion of the
primary literature proved to be somewhat difficult. If anybody knows of
a review or (preferably) a web resource that provides a thorough
overview, then it would be gratefully appreciated. I know that I could
do this myself, but unfortunately I have to teach the joys of mendelian
inheritance to first years and I'm time-limited.
