Hello! Does anyone know of a script or programme to build a matrix based on alignment of 2 or more proteins? I would like to have something like a table where for each amino acid or gap in row there is a number of how many times it changed to the one in column. Thank you in advance

What have you tried so far? have you tried googling for it? here are a number of biostar post on the same/similar topic (found by searching for it):

Make matrix of protein pairwise identities/similarities from multiple protein sequences

Position Weight Matrix From Sequence Alignment

How do I generate a character state matrix?

Thank you! It is the variation of character state matrix I was looking for. No need to be rude, of course I googled for it, just couldn't find the right words apparently, my bad.

I see absolutely nothing in lieven.sterck's comment that could be construed as rude

Maybe, but from my perspective it always sounds condescending when people ask if the questioner was googling for it. Of course they did. I personally spend a lot of time trying to figure a solution on my own and only then ask someone.

experience tells us that often people did not take the effort of first doing a small query on google before they post here. (also the links I provided where simply exemplary and by far not exhaustive). I apologise if you were addressed unrightfully.

anyway, let's keep a constructive mindset here: Perhaps you need to/can elaborate a little more on the specifics of your question/problem.

So I made a replacement dictionary as described in one of the answers here: Creating your own substitution matrix from an alignment and then on its base I built a matrix where the substitutions like A->T and Y->A are counted as separate. Because SubsMat module seems to only allow you to build symmetrical matrices where the direction of change doesn't count.
