Pairwise Sequence Alignment (PROTEIN)

EMBOSS Stretcher calculates an optimal global alignment of two sequences using a modification of the classic dynamic programming algorithm which uses linear space.

This is the form for protein sequences. Please go to the nucleotide form if you wish to align DNA or RNA sequences.

STEP 1 - Enter your protein sequences
