What is an Alignment?

DESCRIPTION

Different alignments assigned to the same species (eg. sequences of different genes) can be stored in one database. The name of the currently accessible alignment (ali_*) is shown in the 3rd broad rectangular button in the top area of the ARB_NT window.

The sequences themselves are not stored in the 'ali_*' field of a species, but in the subfield 'data' of 'ali_*' 'ali_*' is a container field: it holds no data except other data fields (like a directory in a file system).

 

NOTES

There is a special alignment called 'ali_genom' which is used for full genome databases. It's called an alignment because it fits into our database structure, but it should NOT contain any gaps.
