Tools for visualising sequence alignments

A suite of tools for visualising sequence alignments.

Blixem is an interactive browser of pairwise alignments that have been stacked up in a “master-slave” multiple alignment; it is not a ‘true’ multiple alignment but a ‘one-to-many’ alignment.

Belvu is a multiple sequence alignment viewer and phylogenetic tool. It has an extensive set of user-configurable modes to color residues by conservation or by residue type, and some basic alignment editing capabilities.

Dotter is a graphical dot-matrix program for detailed comparison of two sequences. Every residue in one sequence is compared to every residue in the other, with one sequence plotted on the x-axis and the other on the y-axis.
