clustalw - a multiple sequence alignment program
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
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
<http://www.clustal.org/> is also helpful.
