Objective : YASS is an open source software devoted to the classical problem of genomic pairwise alignment, and use most of our knowledge to design and implement efficient seeding techniques these last years.

YASS is frequently used, it always receives more than 300 web queries per month (excluding INRIA and Univ-Lille1 local queries), and is also frequently downloaded and cited.
