TUTORIAL: Comparing genomes using Mauve
Nov. 18, 2017
|You can add as many genomes as you wish in
the Align sequences window. For now, read in
We'll use the Output name "SerArb" for this comparison.
Click the Align button to begin the alignment.
of the alignment is shown in a popup window. This
alignment will probably take several minutes.
The window will indicate "Done" when the alignment is complete. After a slight delay, the alignment will appear in a new Mauve window.
|Exporting images - You can
export the current view of the alignment to an image file
by choosing Tools --> Export Image.
In the example at right, the default format is JPEG, and the image is saved to a file called SerArbView.jpg.
|Resuming a Mauve session - When
creating the alignment, Mauve saves all files related to
the alignment in the current working directory. In the
example, we ran Mauve with the Output name 'SerArb'. All
files will begin with SerArb as the basename eg.
SerArb.guide_tree. You can quit Mauve and resume your
session by choosing File --> Open Alignment. Click on
the file named SerArb (with no extension) and the
alignment files will be read back into Mauve.
