Multiple Sequence Alignments

Multiple sequence alignments can be constructed in the following ways.
  • Align the sequences of a set of orthologs by visiting the gene page for one of the genes, clicking the right-sidebar menu item Align Gene Nucleotide Sequence with Orthologs (or Align Gene Product Amino Acid Sequence with Orthologs), and selecting the organisms from which orthologs should be obtained. The alignment will be computed by Clustal Omega.
  • Construct a SmartTable containing the genes or proteins you wish to align, then run one of the following commands from the right-sidebar menu for that SmartTable: Column → View Alignment of Gene Nucleotide Sequences or Column → View Alignment of Gene Product Peptide Sequences. The alignment will be computed by Clustal Omega.
  • This page enables you to import a set of aligned sequences directly into the MSAviewer tool using the Import button below.

    Note that if you import unaligned sequences directly (e.g., FASTA file) then no aligner will be run. To import a set of aligned sequences, use Clustal or FASTA format.
