flexible multiple sequence editor
Gene Inspector offers a sophisticated sequence editor which can accommodate single, or multiple DNA or protein sequences. Individual sequences can be colored and each sequence is interlaced with the others to allow easy comparison. An overview "pane" at the top of this window shows which segment(s) is being displayed in the sequence pane and can be used to navigate to specific locations in specific sequences. Any number of individual sequences may be placed into a single sequence document - allowing users to save a single file that contains all sequences used in a project.
Multiple sequences placed into the sequence editor can also be aligned. The sequence alignment window can display a histogram scoring row at the top, a consensus sequence, and then the aligned sequences themselves - with shading intensities indicating the extent of matching to the consensus at each position in the sequence. The alignment display is completely customizable, offering more than 640 ways to display multiple sequence alignments - one can show characters that match (or don't match) the consensus; invert character appearance; shade matches/mismatches); box matches/mismatches; color the background behind characters that match or don't match the consensus, etc.
