AlignX is a nucleic acid and protein sequence alignment generator often used for sequence analysis and annotation. The program’s basis for multi-sequence alignments is a customized Clustal W formula. It supports comparative analysis in particular through its option of displaying the alignment in multiple colors and multiple panes. Users can also edit already created alignments if desired.
The program is designed for a multi-program lab computing environment, so it is capable of working with a lot of file formats commonly found in protein sequence analysis. For instance, it supports EMBL, FASTA and Swiss-PROT files. Many other file formats can be used to import data into it, and users can also make use of its drag and drop support for that. The multiple pane viewing mode can do more than let users make their own visual comparisons of domains: it also allows them to link as well as localize domains. Furthermore, users are granted control over the scoring matrix, get the option to change the parameters used for setting up alignments, leverage a dot matrix sequence comparison tool for detecting repeats, and export all their data to other programs and formats for the purpose of generating reports.
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about which types of files AlignX can process, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
