  1. Each row lists a separate Galaxy tool, all available from on the Galaxy Tool Shed [9]. A separate Galaxy tool is listed for each different underlying NCBI BLAST+ command line tool, except for the blastdbcmd command line tool, whose two main functions are represented as two separate Galaxy tools. We intend to add further wrappers later, including for the command line tools psiblast and deltablast
