Everyone is invited to register! Please contact for an account!

The general use of the services of are free of charge and open to everyone.

We offer additional and extended services to registered users (e.g. additional BLAST databases, batch BLAST jobs, BLAST2CSV service, custom BLAST databases).

Usage of these extended services is free to academia only.

Part of these additional services require additional resources and maintenance that are not covered by our academic funding. To ensure future maintenance, improvement and expansion of services, we need to cover these expenses.

Therefore, nonacademic usage of the extended services on has to be financed via an annual nonacademic usage fee:

1 nonacademic account
2-5 nonacademic accounts
250€/year per account
>5 nonacademic accounts
further discount depending on the amount of users

Academic affiliation is determined by the email address and “academia” check-box provided on the account management page of the interface. Email addresses that cannot be traced back to an academic institution will not be accepted for an academic account.

It is possible to register for an annotator-only account free of charge.
