This article introduces a new interface for T-Coffee, a consistency-based multiple sequence alignment program. This interface provides an easy and intuitive access to the most popular functionality of the package. These include the default T-Coffee mode for protein and nucleic acid sequences, the M-Coffee mode that allows combining the output of any other aligners, and template-based modes of T-Coffee that deliver high accuracy alignments while using structural or homology derived templates. These three available template modes are Expresso for the alignment of protein with a known 3D-Structure, R-Coffee to align RNA sequences with conserved secondary structures and PSI-Coffee to accurately align distantly related sequences using homology extension. The new server benefits from recent improvements of the T-Coffee algorithm and can align up to 150 sequences as long as 10 000 residues and is available from both http://www.tcoffee.org and its main mirror http://tcoffee.crg.cat.

High Performance computing improvements on bioinformatics consistency-based multiple sequence alignment tools Orobitg Cortada, Miquel; Guirado Fernández, Fernando; Cores Prado, Fernando; Lladós Segura, Jordi; Notredame, Cedric (Elsevier, 2014-10-08)Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA) is essential for a wide range of applications in Bioinformatics. Traditionally, the alignment accuracy was the main metric used to evaluate the goodness of MSA tools. However, with the ...
Cloud-Coffee: implementation of a parallel consistency-based multiple alignment algorithm in the T-Coffee package and its benchmarking on the Amazon Elastic-Cloud Di Tommaso, Paolo; Orobitg Cortada, Miquel; Guirado Fernández, Fernando; Cores Prado, Fernando; Espinosa, Toni; Notredame, Cedric (Oxford University Press, 2010)Summary: We present the first parallel implementation of the T-Coffee consistency-based multiple aligner. We benchmark it on the Amazon Elastic Cloud (EC2) and show that the parallelization procedure is reasonably ...
