Mentalign is an incremental algorithm for performing a multiple alignment and building the phylogenetic tree of members of a same gene family. When a new sequence is added to a pre-aligned family, the alignment and the tree are modified rather than fully recomputed. For more information please contact: email@example.com Mentalign was developed with Jean-François Dufayard who did his PhD in HELIX. He is now IR at the LIRMM, Montpellier.
