COBALT v2.0.1

COBALT does progressive multiple alignment of protein sequences. The alignment is aided by a collection of pairwise constraints derived from conserved domain database, protein motif database, and local sequence similarity using RPS-BLAST, BLASTP, and PHI-BLAST, respectively. Computation time is reduced by forming clusters of sequences that share a large number of common words and finding conserved domains and motif matches for only one sequence per cluster.

Accessing the software

To load the module:

$ module load apps/cobalt/v2.0.1

An example command to include in your job script:

cobalt -i <input FASTA file>

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.
