Hi,
I am looking for a fast global alignment tool.
I want to find the most identical sequences by comparing a query
sequence with a sequence database.
If I do this with blast or fasta I will get local alignments only but
I want to have an alignment with the complete sequence.
Is there a tool like this? 
As far as I know I have to use the Needleman-Wunsch algorithm for
this, am I right?

Thanks for your help!
