       clustalw - a multiple sequence alignment program


       clustalw [options]


       This  manual  page documents briefly the clustalx command.  This manual
       page was written for the  Debian  GNU/Linux  distribution  because  the
       original  program  does  not have a manual page.  Instead, it has other
       documentation; see below.

       clustalx is a windows interface  for  the  ClustalW  multiple  sequence
       alignment program. It provides an integrated environment for performing
       multiple sequence and profile alignments and analysing the results. The
       sequence  alignment is displayed in a window on the screen. A versatile
       coloring  scheme  has  been  incorporated  allowing  you  to  highlight
       conserved  features   in the alignment.  The pull-down menus at the top
       of the window  allow  you  to  select  all  the  options  required  for
       traditional multiple sequence and profile alignment.

       You  can  cut-and-paste sequences to change the order of the alignment;
       you can select a subset of sequences to be aligned; you  can  select  a
       sub-range  of  the alignment to be realigned and inserted back into the
       original alignment.

       Alignment quality analysis can be performed and low-scoring segments or
       exceptional residues can be highlighted.


       Files in /usr/share/doc/clustalx contain a lot of details. The Web page
       <> is also helpful.
