Sequence alignments

Filed under: Bioinformatics, Science — cupton @ 7:53 am

Have you ever wanted to make a small diagram to show a conserved motif or a sequence aligment?
And then pulled your hair out while trying to get it to look JUST THE WAY YOU WANT?
There’s a few programs to help, but most don’t quite have the flexibility or resolution.
I always used to use SeqVu, back in the pre OS X days.

Well, finally we (Cristalle Watson) made a stencil in OmniGraffle to easily build these diagrams. Attached Image

Yes, Omnigraffle costs $$.
Yes, it’s a manual process and may not be useful for big alignments.
BUT, it works!!

You can find our stencils at: Graffletopia – Science category!
