CHAOS + DIALIGN [job submission]

Pair-wise and multiple alignment of genomic sequences with CHAOS and DIALIGN

By Mike Brudno and Burkhard Morgenstern

This service calculates pair-wise and multiple alignments of genomic sequences using CHAOS and DIALIGN as described in If you use our software for your research, please cite this article. CHAOS is used to rapidly identify strong sequence similarities that serve as anchor points to speed-up the DIALIGN alignment procedure. Details about the CHAOS/DIALIGN procedure are available here.

Program Input:

Upload sequences in multiple FASTA format
(as a TEXT file, not MS-Word, not RTF!)

Program Output:

Our server creates four different output files from your input sequence set. The full alignment is returned in DIALIGN format. In addition, a list of fragments, i.e. gap-free segment pairs created by DIALIGN is returned, as well as anchor points created by CHAOS and the full alignment in FASTA format.

These files can be accessed during the next 5 days.
