xmatchview: smith-waterman alignment visualization


xmatchview and xmatchview-conifer are imaging tools for comparing the synteny between DNA sequences. It allows users to align 2 DNA sequences in fasta format using cross_match and displays the alignment in a variety of image formats. xmatchview and xmatchview-conifer are written in python and run on linux and windows. They serve as visual tools for analyzing cross_match alignments. Cross_match (Green, P. (1994) http://www.phrap.org) uses an implementation of the Smith-Waterman algorithm for comparing DNA sequences that is sensitive.
