The fasta file extension is related to a FASTA format that does not contain the chromatogram but only the sequence string (it is much more simple format).

Other programs provide information on the statistical significance of an alignment. Like BLAST, FASTA can be used to infer functional and evolutionary relationships between sequences as well as help identify members of gene families.
