EMBL-EBI to be HTTPS by default from 1st December

On the 1st December the majority of services hosted on www.ebi.ac.uk will be served over HTTPS by default. Services that are becoming HTTPS by default will automatically redirect users accessing the site on insecure HTTP URLs to secure HTTPS URLs.
Users of EMBL-EBI services may wish to update links, bookmarks or API clients to use the HTTPS URLs.

ClustalW2 is a general purpose DNA or protein multiple sequence alignment program for three or more sequences. For the alignment of two sequences please instead use our pairwise sequence alignment tools.

Please Note

The ClustalW2 services have been retired. To access similar services, please visit the Multiple Sequence Alignment tools page. For protein alignments we recommend Clustal Omega. For DNA alignments we recommend trying MUSCLE or MAFFT. If you have any questions/concerns please contact us via the feedback link above.
