To our users Please note that the HCV database site is no longer funded. We try to keep the database updated and the tools running, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee we can provide help for using this site. Data won't be manually curated either.
Purpose: Epilign generates an alignment of your amino acid sequence against our ready-made alignments.
Details: This tool can be used to align epitopes, functional domains, or any protein region of interest. An analogous tool, PrimAlign, performs the same function for nucleotide sequences.
Input should consist of a single amino acid sequence. For cases where alignment of C-terminal residues is critical, Epilign offers an option to delete gaps from the alignment; see Epilign Explanation.
