       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.
