Multiple sequence alignment remains a crucial method for understanding the function of groups of related nucleic acid and protein sequences. However, it is known that automatic multiple sequence alignments can often be improved by manual editing. Therefore, tools are needed to view and edit multiple sequence alignments.
Gives access to many free software tools for sequence analysis. EMBOSS aims to serve the molecular biology community. It permits the creation and the release of software in an open source spirit. This tool is useful for sequence analysis into a seamless whole. It is free of charge and is available in open source.
Conducts next generation sequencing (NGS) investigation. Geneious provides visual sequence alignment and editing, sequence assembly, comprehensive molecular cloning and phylogenetic analysis. It increases process efficiency and improves data organization. This tool enables the importation and conversion of a vast range of data types and offers a solution to customize researchers’ algorithms.
Integrates workflow technology and in-built access to bioinformatics resources including remote data warehouses and tools. Galaxy permits users without programming skills to conduct computational analysis through the Web. It builds a succession of tools to perform multistep studies and is able to conserve the complete provenance of each analysis step. This platform offers drag and drop functionalities to ease the construction of workflows.
A multiplatform program designed to facilitate multiple alignment and phylogenetic tree building from molecular sequence data through the use of a graphical user interface. SeaView version 4 combines all the functions of the widely used programs SeaView (in its previous versions) and Phylo_win, and expands them by adding network access to sequence databases, alignment with arbitrary algorithm, maximum-likelihood tree building with PhyML, and display, printing, and copy-to-clipboard of rooted or unrooted, binary or multifurcating phylogenetic trees.
Provides several tools for sequence database maintenance and analysis. ARB is a graphically oriented package that consists of software tools directly interacting with one another as well as the central database, which are controlled via a common graphical interface. It includes software for visualization, sequence edition, profiles determination, filtering, phylogenetic treeing, sequence alignment, probe design and evaluation and data import and export.
A system to provide a flexible and usable Web environment for defining and running bioinformatics analyses. It embeds simple yet powerful data management features that allow the user to reproduce analyses and to combine tools using a hierarchical typing system. Mobyle offers invocation of services distributed over remote Mobyle servers, thus enabling a federated network of curated bioinformatics portals without the user having to learn complex concepts or to install sophisticated software.
A system for interactive WYSIWYG editing, analysis and annotation of multiple sequence alignments. Core features include keyboard and mouse-based editing, multiple views and alignment overviews, and linked structure display with Jmol. Jalview 2 is available in two forms: a lightweight Java applet for use in web applications, and a powerful desktop application that employs web services for sequence alignment, secondary structure prediction and the retrieval of alignments, sequences, annotation and structures from public databases and any DAS 1.53 compliant sequence or annotation server.
