edialign is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European Molecular Biology Open Software Suite”). It is part of the "Alignment:Multiple" command group(s).


Input section

-sequences seqset

Additional section

-nucmode list
Nucleic acid sequence alignment mode (simple, translated or mixed) Default value: n
-revcomp boolean

Default value: 40
-fragmat boolean
Default value: N

-threshold float
Default value: 0.0

Output section

-mask boolean
Default value: N
-dostars boolean
Default value: N
