A number of tools have been created for use in the field of comparative genomics. This page attempts to capture broad-level information associated with each tool. Feel free to edit this table as you see fit.

Comparison of Available Software

Name Global/Local Pairwise/Multiple Desc/Notes Open Source URL Reference(s)

MUMmer

Global

Pairwise

  • comes with other programs and an alignment viewer (v3.0)

Yes, as of version 3.0

http://mummer.sourceforge.net/

PMID:14759262[1]

Mauve

glocal - uses local alignments to guide a global alignment

Multiple

  • uses an anchor-based-approach, MUMs
  • handles large-scale evolutionary changes well (rearrangements, horizontal transfer, insertions/deletions, etc.)

No, freely distributed.

PMID:15231754[2]

MGA - Multiple Genome Aligner

Glocal

Multiple

  • extends the idea of MUMs to multiple genomes
  • works best with closely related sequences (doesn't take rearrangements into consideration)

No, freely available

http://bibiserv.techfak.uni-bielefeld.de/mga/

PMID:12169561[3]

GAME

Local

Pairwise

  • an anchor filtering scheme
  • incorporates the translation into the filtering scheme to increase sensitivity
  • adjustable parameters for filtering allow comparison across different phylogenetic distances

Efficient Multiple Alignment algorithm for whole GENomes

Glocal
