Multiple alignment program for amino acid or nucleotide sequences
MAFFT is a multiple sequence alignment program which offers three accuracy-oriented methods:
* L-INS-i (probably most accurate; recommended for <200 sequences; iterative refinement method incorporating local pairwise alignment information), * G-INS-i (suitable for sequences of similar lengths; recommended for <200 sequences; iterative refinement method incorporating global pairwise alignment information), * E-INS-i (suitable for sequences containing large unalignable regions; recommended for <200 sequences),and five speed-oriented methods:
* FFT-NS-i (iterative refinement method; two cycles only), * FFT-NS-i (iterative refinement method; max. 1000 iterations), * FFT-NS-2 (fast; progressive method), * FFT-NS-1 (very fast; recommended for >2000 sequences; progressive method with a rough guide tree), * NW-NS-PartTree-1 (recommended for ∼50,000 sequences; progressive method with the PartTree algorithm).
