MUSCLE (alignment software)


MUSCLE (alignment software)

MUSCLE (multiple sequence comparison by log-expectation) is public domain, multiple sequence alignment software for protein and nucleotide sequences.[1][2]

MUSCLE is often used as a replacement for Clustal, since it typically (but not always) gives better sequence alignments; in addition, MUSCLE is significantly faster than Clustal, especially for larger alignments (Edgar 2004).

MUSCLE is integrated into UGENE bioinformatics tool as a plugin.
