Create an alignment

Alignments can be created from sequences, sequence lists, existing alignments and from any combination of the three.

To create an alignment, go to:

        Toolbox | Classical Sequence Analysis (Image gene_and_protein_analysis) | Alignments and Trees (Image alignmentsandtrees)| Create Alignment (Image alignment)

This opens the dialog shown in figure 24.1.

After selecting the elements to align, you are presented with options that can be configured (figure 24.2).
