MAFFT is a multiple alignment program for amino acid or nucleotide sequences. ¹

Installed version(s)

The following versions are installed and currently available...

... on environment hpc-env/8.3:

  • MAFFT/7.475-GCC-8.3.0-with-extensions

Loading / Using MAFFT

To load the desired version of the module, use the module load command, e.g.

module load hpc-env/8.3
module load MAFFT

Always remember: this command is case sensitive!

After loading MAFFT, you can start MAFFT either by just calling mafft. In this case, MAFFT will ask you to enter an input file and an output file. You can shorten this process by simply entering input and output files when calling MAFFT:

mafft input > output
