Multipe Sequence Alignments:
Alternative Multiple Sequence Alignment Methods


The T-Coffee alignment is here. You can use the colored html output to estimate its reliability. Note the motif CGAVAK in green

The Muscle alignment is here. Try to identify the position of this same motif. It is aligned differently.

The ClustalW alignment is here. Here as well the motif is aligned differently.


The alignments are partly different, partly identical


The Mcoffee alignment is an average of all the slected methods, it can be found here, but more interestingly, the colored output shows where all methods agree(red) or disagree (green, yellow). These are the most reliable parts of the alignment
