MView 1) re-formats the results of a sequence database search (BLAST, FASTA, etc) or a multiple alignment (MSF, PIR, CLUSTAL, etc) adding optional HTML markup to control colouring and web page layout.
When generating a multiple sequence alignment from a sequence database search result MView uses only the sequence data which appears in the search result. As a consequence regions of the query sequence and/or the hits found which are not matched do not appear in the generated alignment, however the alignments found in the search are retained as part of the multiple alignment. This contrasts with the method used by DbClustal (DbClustal (REST) or DbClustal (SOAP)) which uses the full length sequences (query and hits) to generate the alignment.
