What is an Alignment?
Merge main window and workflow
Check and modify the consistency of two alignments
Checks the types of data stored within 'alignments' (see
) for consistency to prevent merging of non homologous data such as 16S and 23S rRNA or protein and DNA sequence data.
Press the 'Check Alignments' button to display the 'MERGE ALIGNMENTS' window.
The 'Check' button checks all alignments.
If any alignment exists only in the source database (DB) then the alignment will be created in the target DB (but no sequences will be copied).
If the alignment exists in both databases then the sequence_type will be compared.
If any inconsistencies are detected the user has to resolve them by pressing the 'MODIFY' button to display the 'ALIGNMENT CONTROL' window. This tool allows to modify the alignments.
