Perform protein alignments from Template

You can use our protein alignment tool to perform consensus alignments for proteins or to align proteins against a template. Alignments are powered by Clustal Omega and can support dozens to hundreds of proteins. 

To create a protein alignment, click on the universal create button, navigate to AA sequence and select "New Alignment." 

In the alignment window, search for the amino acid (AA) File(s) that you'd like to align. 

To perform an alignment from template, hover over a protein file and click on the blue set "Set Template" button to designate the AA sequence as your template. To change the template AA sequence, simply click on "Unset Template."

Perform protein consensus alignments 

In the alignment window, search for the amino acid (AA) File(s) that you'd like to align. To perform a consensus alignment, make sure that none of the AA files are set as template. To remove the template designation from an AA file, simply click on "Unset Template."

Name your Consensus AA Sequencing, save it in a folder and click on "Create Alignment." 

View previous alignments that use a protein

In the alignments panel, you'll be able to see any alignment that you've created using this protein, even if they live on a different protein.

To rename an alignment, click Pencil Icon located on the right hand side of the saved alignment. To delete an alignment, click on the trashcan icon.
