Abstract

SUMMARY: We have developed Look-Align, an interactive web-based viewer to display pre-computed multiple sequence alignments. Although initially developed to support the visualization needs of the maize diversity website Panzea (http://www.panzea.org), the viewer is a generic stand-alone tool that can be easily integrated into other websites. AVAILABILITY: Look-Align is written in Perl using open-source components and is available under an open-source license. Live installation and download information can be found at the Panzea website (http://www.panzea.org/software/alignment_viewer.html). CONTACT: ware@cshl.edu SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Supplementary information includes sample lists of multiple sequence alignment software and sample screenshots of the viewer.
