Hi good people,

I am trying to get the consensus sequence from the same genes so that i can use it to design primers. I have aligned them in ClustalO and can see the sequence in JalView. How do I export it to a primer designing program? I have tried copy and paste but it does not seem to work.

I have tried aligning them in CAP3 but I don't get any results.

Help!!

From JalView you can copy the consensus sequence using right-click on the word consensus near the consensus histogram (on mac it is the command key (⌘) and click). This opens up a menu where you select the Copy Consensus Sequence as seen in the screenshot. the screenshot You can then paste your consensus sequence into a text editor or your primer design program.

One option would be to use the EMBOSS tool cons to generate the consensus sequence from the alignment.

The EMBOSS tools are available on-line in a wide range of places, for example:

If you want to install EMBOSS locally you have a number of options:

Note that in newer ubuntu version, emboss cons is renamed to em_cons. it took me a while to figure this one out. source
