I am currently working on an MSA between the bioluminescent jellyfish Periphylla Periphylla and the radiotropic fungi Cladosporium sphaerospermum to clean up Fukushima's radioactive waters. If you have any tips or could lend a hand, its appreciated. Its the first MSA I'm doing and probably the subject of my doctoral work.

Greetings from Jupiter. Have you tried to obtain the genome sequences for these and then perform an alignment that way? Please also modify your title to reflect better your question.

Salutations from Mars.

What is the rationale for aligning the jellyfish sequences to that from fungi? And when you say MSA a term that I interpret as multiple sequence alignment which organism is there multiple times? The two that you list there would make it a pairwise alignment.

Well, the Police Took my phone i Wrote These on and i only Have a playstation availabLe. Its Hard to Code on it. The msa is for gertting the right Gene from all biolumisent animals and radiotropic fungi as first step. I wanted to look where i'll go from there with your help.

Fungi and jellyfish (to my knowledge) are not going to be at all closely related. I very much doubt the basis of their bioluminescence is the same as there are multiple ways nature has achieved this.

You would be better served focussing on fungi and jellyfish etc separately. You have not said what your research question is though, so currently it's not obvious how doing an MSA helps you achieve your end goal.

Guten tag, I am now on Pluto, about to embark for Proxima Centauri. Can we set up a WebEx please to discuss the MSA?
