Hi guys, I was wondering to know if some of you have used MDAT program (http://www.bornberglab.org/pages/mdat), this is an aligner for protein domains. But it seems to be a little bit old and there are no good descriptions of the way to use it. The --help flag gave me:
[faf43525@52563es1 MDAT]$ /usr/local/bin/mdat --help MDA v1.0 Copyright (C) 2013,2014 Carsten Kemena This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; Allowed options are displayed below.: General options: -h [ --help ] Produces this help message -s [ --sequence ] arg Sequence file -d [ --domain_f ] arg Domain file -o [ --msa_out ] arg File to write the MSA to. -a [ --mda_out ] arg File to write the MDA to. -f [ --format ] arg (=fasta) Output format for the MSA -t [ --threads ] arg (=1) Number of threads to use
Some ideas to use it? do not know what is i.e Domain file. Because the flag --domain_f is mandatory. Thanks a lot.
