- seaview [filename]
SeaView is a graphical interface for multiple sequence alignment and molecular phylogeny. It is able to read various alignment formats (MSF, CLUSTAL, FASTA, PHYLIP, MASE, NEXUS) and the Newick tree format, and allows one to manually edit the alignment, to run DOT-PLOT, CLUSTAL or MUSCLE programs to locally improve the alignment, and also to compute, draw and edit phylogenetic trees.
If started from the command line with filename as an argument, seaview will open the alignment or tree stored in filename and display/draw it on screen. Filename can be in any of the mase, clustal, phylip, msf, fasta, or nexus alignment formats or in the Newick tree format.
- Suppresses double buffering for display. This should only accelerate display on very slow systems.
- Sets the font size to n.
$HOME/.seaviewrc holds the user's configuration for SeaView.
