LowMACA relies on three external resources to work properly. - Clustal Omega version 1.2.x, our trusted aligner ( - Ghostscript, a postscript interpreter needed to draw logo plots ( - Protter, a tool for visualization of proteoforms and annotation of predicted sequences ( Clustal Omega is a fast aligner that you can download from the link above. Be sure to have clustalo within your PATH. For Linux and MacOSX users don't forget to run chmod u+x clustalo. If you don't want to install a local clustalo, you can use the clustal omega web service, but you will need perl with the modules XML::Simple and LWP. They are generally included in every new perl installation. Ghostscript is an interpreter of postscript language and that is used by the R library grImport to draw logo plots. It is generally already present in most Unix OS. - For Linux users, simply download the program from and compile it - For MacOS users there is a dmg installer at - For Windows users, download the program from and then you have 3 options: 1. Put C:/Program Files/gs/gs9.05/bin in your PATH once for all (Adjust the path to match your gs installation) 2. Run the command below at every new session of R # Needed only on Windows - run once per R session # Adjust the path to match your installation of Ghostscript > Sys.setenv(R_GSCMD = '"C:/Program Files/gs/gs9.05/bin/gswin32c.exe"') 3. Put the command showed above in your .Renviron file Protter is a cool predictor and visualizer of protein sequence secondary structures. It's a web-based tool and doesn't require any special setting except from a internet connection.
