Pretty Printing and Shading of Multiple-Alignment files
Note:StartingJuly 17, version 3.21 is running on this server. The only changes are some improvements in the RTF output routine that enables RTF with shaded background for users of MS-Word 7.0
I have also compiled a list of List of frequently asked questions.
This server uses version 3.21 of BOXSHADE, written by K. Hofmann and M. Baron. BOXSHADE is in the public domain and available from Source Forge http://sourceforge.net/projects/boxshade/ The available version runs on PCs, VMS- and OSF1-machines and includes much more options than are implemented on this server.
This server takes a multiple-alignment file in either GCG's MSF-format or Clustals ALN-format.
Output can be created in the following formats:
Postscript/EPS (using shaded background)
RTF old (using colors)
RTF new (using shaded background)
XFIG-files (using shaded background)
ASCII (showing similarities)
ASCII (showing differences)
HPGL (using colors)
PICT (for later editing on MACs and PCs)
