alignment of short DNA sequences
The package provices a reimplementation of the Nearest Alignment Space Termination tool in Python. It was prepared for next generation sequencers.
Given a set of sequences and a template alignment, PyNAST will align the input sequences against the template alignment, and return a multiple sequence alignment which contains the same number of positions (or columns) as the template alignment. This facilitates the analysis of new sequences in the context of existing alignments, and additional data derived from existing alignments such as phylogenetic trees. Because any protein or nucleic acid sequences and template alignments can be provided, PyNAST is not limited to the analysis of 16s rDNA sequences.
