ShaEP 1.3.0 – Align Two Rigid 3D Molecular Structure Models

ShaEP 1.3.0

:: DESCRIPTION

ShaEP aligns (superimposes) two rigid 3D molecular structure models and computes a similarity index for the overlay. It can be used for the virtual screening of libraries of chemical structures against a known active molecule, or as a preparative step for 3D QSAR methods.

Alignancer 0.6 – Align Unaligned Regions in a HMMer-3 output alignments

Alignancer 0.6

:: DESCRIPTION

Alignancer is a tool for alignment enhancing. It is performing additional alignments on masked sections of hmmalign (HMMER 3.0) multiple alignments. ClustalW (default) or Muscle is being utilized to automatically align all sections which were not covered by a profile HMM and therefore were not aligned. In using additional aligners to complement hmmalign, compulsory loss of information may be avoided keeping the entire alignment for subsequent analyses, e.g. the calculation of phylogenetic trees.

ALIGN 2.0 – Pairwise Alignment

ALIGN 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

ALIGN (Pairwise alignment) is a tool designed for performing sequence alignments in a wide variety of combinations. It implements sequence to sequence, sequence to profile and profile to profile alignments with optional support of secondary structure. Different alignment options are freely selectable and include alignment types (local, global, free-shift) and number of sub-optimal results to report.

SHRiMP 2.2.3 – Align Genomic Reads against Target genome

SHRiMP 2.2.3

:: DESCRIPTION

SHRiMP (SHort Read Mapping Package) is a software package for aligning genomic reads against a target genome. It was primarily developed with the multitudinous short reads of next generation sequencing machines in mind, as well as Applied Biosystem’s colourspace genomic representation.

Phylo 3.3.2 / Open-Phylo – Gaming Framework to Align Genomic Data

Phylo 3.3.2 / Open-Phylo

:: DESCRIPTION

Phylo is a human-based computing framework applying “crowd sourcing” techniques to solve the Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA) problem. The key idea of Phylo is to convert the MSA problem into a casual game that can be played by ordinary web users with a minimal prior knowledge of the biological context.

Open-Phylo is an open crowd-computing platform to solve the multiple sequence alignment problem.

M-Coffee – Combination of Multiple Sequence Alignment Packages

M-Coffee

:: DESCRIPTION

M-Coffee is a multiple sequence alignment Package. It is part of the T-Coffee distribution. The specificity of M-Coffee is that rather than computing a multiple sequence alignment on its own, it uses other packages to compute the alignments. It then uses T-Coffee to combine all these alignents into one unique final alignment.
