* FASTF – Compares an ordered peptide mixture, as would be obtained by Edman degradation of a CNBr cleavage of a protein, against a protein database.
* FASTM – Compares an ordered set of peptides to a protein sequence database.
* FASTS – Compares a set of short peptide fragments, as would be obtained from mass-spec. analysis of a protein, against a protein database.
