This is a web server for multiple alignment of protein and
nucleic acid sequences using DIALIGN with (optional) user-defined anchor points.

Please note that the present server is designed for protein and
nucleotide sequences of moderate length, i.e. up to a few kb. For alignment
of larger genomic sequences, we offer a
web server using the integrated CHAOS/DIALIGN software described by
et al. (2003), BMC Bioinformatics 4,66

If you want to upload your anchor points, please use a file
in this format
(recommended for large sets of anchor points)
Alternatively, if you have only a few anchor points, you can put them into the table below.
Note that each anchor point corresponds to a pair of
equal-length segments that are to be aligned. So an anchor point is
characterized by two sequences, by the start positions of the segments
and by the segment length. In addition, each anchor point needs a score
that determines its priority in case of conflicting anchor points.
If you enter anchor points by filling the
above table, no scores for anchor points are required. Instead,
proposed anchor points are prioritized by the order in which you input
