Kalign

Online

Improves both the accuracy and speed of multiple sequence alignment by employing the Wu-Manber string-matching algorithm. Kalign follows a strategy analogous to the standard progressive method for sequence alignment. Pairwise distances are calculated, a guide tree is constructed and sequences/profiles are aligned in the order given by the tree. Residues are assigned to three states which are interconnected by arrows representing transitions.
