AMAP is a multiple sequence alignment program based on a new approach to multiple alignment called sequence annealing. This approach consists of building up the multiple alignment one match at a time, thereby circumventing many of the problems of progressive alignment. The AMAP parameters can be used to tune the sensivitiy-specificity tradeoff.
The program can be used through the AMAP web server or as a standalone program which can be installed with the source code.
This program accepts sequences in FASTA format.
