I tried to use NCBI BLAST to estimate the evolutionary distance
between very short local protein sequence segments in homologous
proteins with high sequence identity. e.g. KIYKDTEGY against KIKNTEGY
However, bl2seq constantly fails to come up with an alignment or even
crashes for those very short sequences. Which other alignment tool
could I use in order to get score that are comparable to BLAST (e.g.
As far as I saw, FASTA does not have a sequence-against-sequence mode,
Thanks for your help,
