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.
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
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
