WImpiBLAST - Web Interface for mpiBLAST

Although BLAST is a deserved ORCAcronym in its own right, it is also notable for the number of spin-offs and add-ons that it has produced. One such program is mpiBLAST, an open-source parallelisation of BLAST. This is turn has spawned WImpiBLAST - Web Interface for mpiBLAST. I’m not sure if WImpiBLAST deserves a new “anti hoc” class of acronym, as parallelisation of BLAST on a supercomputer is anything but wimpy. Ad hoc will do for now.
