Clustal X

Introduction

Using Clustal X on RCC Resources

Clustal X, much like its sister program Clustal W, does not require a module to be loaded in order to run. Clustal X is the GUI version of Clustal W so it is primarily designed to be an interactive program. In order to start the GUI for Clustal X, simply run clustalx from the command line and the GUI will start.
