  • SGD introduces a new graphical overview of BLAST search results. The graph's purpose is to give the user a brief summary of the entire result set. It differs significantly from the previous graph's design in an attempt to give a broader perspective on the data. New features include color coding of P-values, annotations displayed via JavaScript, and a date stamp for archival reference.
