clustalw2 description

ClustalW2 is a general purpose multiple sequence alignment program for DNA or proteins. It attempts to calculate the best match for the selected sequences, and lines them up so that the identities, similarities and differences can be seen.

Parent program: clustalw2

ClustalW2 is a widely used general purpose multiple sequence alignment tool for nucleotide and protein sequences. It provides progressive alignment based on a guide tree. ClustalW2 maintains two types of pair-wise alignment (slow and fast) for pre-processing the information. Every step of the progressive alignment and output format can be adjusted by sets of parameters with reasonable defaults.
