Adz is a tool for identifying a sequence, like an adapter sequence for miRNA experiments, in another sequence, like reads from a miRNA experiment.  Its efficiency is O(M * N) where M is the length of the longer sequence and N is the length of the shorter sequence.

Currently, it does not support insertions and deletions and only supports the FASTA with quality format from Illumina.
