Abstract

SUMMARY:

Here we describe a set of tools implemented within the Galaxy platform designed to make analysis of multiple genome alignments truly accessible for biologists. These tools are available through both a web-based graphical user interface and a command-line interface.

AVAILABILITY AND IMPLEMENTATION:

This open-source toolset was implemented in Python and has been integrated into the online data analysis platform Galaxy (public web access: http://usegalaxy.org; download: http://getgalaxy.org). Additional help is available as a live supplement from http://usegalaxy.org/u/dan/p/maf.
