After performing a multiple sequence alignment, you may wish to detect and remove outliers from the alignment.
- From the Distance view, select a reference sequence.
- Choose Distance > Order Sequences by Distance from Selection. By default, a heat map color scheme is applied. This can be customized in the Distance section of the Style panel.
- From the Distance table, select the sequences you want to remove from the alignment. Note that the rows nearest to the bottom of the table differ the most from the reference sequence. The Distance table metrics and heat map coloration can help you decide which sequences to remove.
- Choose Align > Unalign Selected.
