# msa: An R Package for Multiple Sequence Alignment
 The 'msa' package provides a unified R/Bioconductor interface to
 the multiple sequence alignment algorithms ClustalW, ClustalOmega,
 and Muscle. All three algorithms are integrated in the package,
 therefore, they do not depend on any external software tools
 and are available for all major platforms. The multiple sequence
 alignment algorithms are complemented by a function for
 pretty-printing multiple sequence alignments using the LaTeX
 package TeXshade.
 This is the source code repository. The package can be installed from
 Further information and installation instructions are also available from
 Although the package is maintained by Ulrich Bodenhofer, the package itself
 has been implemented mainly by Enrico Bonatesta and Christoph Kainrath-Horejs.
