MUSCLE is a multiple alignment program with accuracy and speed that are consistently better than CLUSTALW.



See versions of muscle which are available:

$ module avail muscle

Load a particular version into your environment and run it:

$ module load muscle/3.8.1551
$ muscle -version
MUSCLE v3.8.1551 by Robert C. Edgar


Notes from the sysadmin during installation:

$ cd /tmp
$ wget
$ mkdir muscle
$ tar xf muscle_src_3.8.1551.tar.gz -C muscle
$ cd muscle
$ sudo dnf install glibc-static libstdc++-static.x86_64
$ make
$ sudo mkdir -p /export/apps/muscle/3.8.1551
$ sudo cp muscle /export/apps/muscle/3.8.1551

If you get an error about inability to link against -lm you need to install glibc-static.
