slice_fasta description

Slice_fasta slices a subsequence from an input FASTA file. Assumes 1-based, fully-closed coordinates and requires user to input coordinates from which to which make a slice (subset). This tool is capable of producing a reverse-complemented sequence to the requested slice.

FSA is a probabilistic multiple sequence alignment algorithm which uses a 'distance-based' approach to aligning homologous protein, RNA or DNA sequences. Much as distance-based phylogenetic reconstruction methods like Neighbor-Joining build a phylogeny using only pairwise divergence estimates, FSA builds a multiple alignment using only pairwise estimations of homology. FSA can be used for all alignment problems, including: detailed analysis of a single family of proteins or RNAs, large-scale alignment of thousands of sequences and genome alignment of megabases of orthologous sequences.
