Annotation convention when dealing with sequencing error/ambiguity
... I'm annotating sequences for use in a database. When dealing with a sequence that has obvious error at the terminal end/s, is it reasonable to salvage/annotate as much biological plausible information as possible, or does any sequencing error cast doubt on the reliability of the sequence as a whole? ...

Comment: C: Installing new MAFFT version
... Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try to prepend the directory to $PATH and hope it prioritizes based on order while also changing the mafft file name slightly to better distinguish the two versions. I've been navigating to the appropriate directory and issuing an authoritative command (./mafft), whic ...

Installing new MAFFT version
... I'm trying to update my MAFFT version without overwriting the existing version (it's difficult for me to get root access). I've created a pseudo bin folder to contain the new MAFFT files, but I seem to be unable to specify priority of the new MAFFT location (defaults to /user/local/bin). When I do c ...

Answer: A: Long terminal gaps in MAFFT alignment
... Contacted the creator of MAFFT (Dr. Katoh), who suggested using a lep value of -0.5. This solved my terminal gap problem by "penalizing long internal gaps more strongly than terminal gaps. As a result, a terminal gap (W-----$) is inserted instead of the internal gap (-----W$) while the W/W match is ...
