interactive browser of sequence alignments


Blixem is an interactive browser of sequence alignments that have been stacked up in a "master-slave" multiple alignment; it is not a 'true' multiple alignment but a 'one-to-many' alignment.

 * Overview section showing the positions of genes and alignments around
   the alignment window
 * Detail section showing the actual alignment of protein or nucleotide
   sequences to the genomic DNA sequence.
 * View alignments against both strands of the reference sequence.
 * View sequences in nucleotide or protein mode; in protein mode, Blixem
   will display the three-frame translation of the reference sequence.
 * Residues are highlighted in different colours depending on whether
   they are an exact match, conserved substitution or mismatch.
 * Gapped alignments are supported, with insertions and deletions being
   highlighted in the match sequence.
 * Matches can be sorted and filtered.
 * SNPs and other variations can be highlighted in the reference
 * Poly(A) tails can be displayed and poly(A) signals highlighted in the
   reference sequence.
