STRETCHER (a part of EMBOSS package)
calculates a global alignment of two sequences using a modification of the
classic dynamic programming algorithm which uses linear space.
A global pairwise alignment is one where it is assumed that the two
sequences have diverged from a common ancestor and that the program should try
to stretch the two sequences, introducing gaps where necessary, in order to show
the alignment over the whole length of the two sequences that best illustrates
their similarities. For more information about STRETCHER visit
or the EMBOSS site.
Our installation of STRETCHER allows for "massive" pairwise alignments
of each sequence from one set (the query) to each sequence from the second
set (the reference). You will need to upload the query and the reference
sets in fasta format. You can also specify additional program
Calculations will be carried out on the BioHPC compute cluster at CBSU. You will receive e-mail notifications when the job is submitted, when it starts, and when it is finished. Output will be available via links embedded in the notification e-mails. For more information about this program and BioHPC interface in general, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
