Lambda is a local aligner optimized for many query sequences and searches in protein space. It is compatible to BLAST, but much faster than BLAST and many other comparable tools.

Downloads are available from the sidebar on the left. Lambda is Free and open source software, so you can use it for any purpose, free of charge. However certain conditions apply when you (re-)distribute or modify Lambda, please respect the license. Also, please cite the publication if you use Lambda anywhere in your academic work. Thank you!

The manual, build instructions and much more are available in the WIKI.
